It's a Packard Bell SK-2100W, and it's quite old and loud. I've taken a picture of under the keycaps, and to me they look like Alps switches, but I'm not an expert.

If it isn't it doesn't really matter as I was given it.

Any ideas?

Can I ask how you can tell? So I know what to look for in future.

All I could find was on geekhack stating it was rubber but with Cherry MX keys... which doesn't seem right. I will consider cracking it open.

To reduce strain, select an environment where you can work comfortably. Consult the "Quick Start Guide" for more information.

That's what it says.

Disassembled, and it appears to be a keycap, then a plastic slider piece, which hits an individual rubber dome on each key. I think it's an early rubber dome where the keycap and plastic piece are separated (instead of today's conventional ones where it's all one piece and the domes are on sheets.

Probably came from a massage parlor.

I'd look it up for you WHICH rubber dome (it's not NMB style) but Geekhack is down.
