You can use and abuse a SSK for a decade, and sell it for more than you got it for.

You mean you sold your AAPL a couple of months ago?

Last NIB IBM manufactured "white label" 1391401 I saw went for almost $400.

For those of us late to the party, the price of admission appears to have gone way up for such an original IBM, if you want a new one. If you can even still find one...

The jokes on them; they're little better than a $79 Unicomp. Arguably worse if you want a less stiff keyboard.

From what I've heard, both the IBM and Unicomp offer a high quality typing experience. However, I do notice that an earlier board without the drainage holes sounds nicer (less ringy) compared to a latter board with. And the fit and finish of the IBM board is just beautiful. (If one can get excited about such a thing. )

In any case, is $300 worth it for a NIB IBM 1391401? Well, yes, if that's what you want. As many apparently still do. It's hard to find them at all at this point from what I can tell...

The ringing is a product of board condition invariably. The only advantage really is the quality of the finish, they're no more durable or longer lasting than what Unicomp is churning out.

I'd question if people really know what they want, but that starts to get into the realms of philosophy.
