i've been using model M2s (1395300) exclusively for over the past decade. each one usually lasts 3-6 years, & i'm getting near needing another. unfortunately clickykeyboards.com doesn't have one in stock, & judging by their prices, i can do MUCH better. the last one i purchased was $25, & that was the most i've ever paid for one. ($6 was the least in 1997.)
You have got to be kidding me!! They actually charge this much for these things!! I have a buddy that has 2 HUGE boxes full of keyboards from yesteryear. He may just have a goldmine in his attic and not even know it.



Well if someone wants to sell me one let me know. I am most certainly not paying $125 for one.
