The New Model M buckling spring keyboard has the same mechanism and feel as the original IBM Model M keyboard but with a slightly smaller footprint and the Mac version is configured specifically for Apple/Mac users.
With the much-loved buckling spring key design these keyboards have been prized by computer enthusiasts and robust typists because of the tactile and auditory feedback of each keystroke.
Manufactured in Lexington, Kentucky, this buckling spring keyboard is a heavy, audible click keyboard with a solid feel reminiscent of the classic IBM Model M keyboard.
Buckling springs originated in IBM's mechanical keyboard as a fundamentally different kind of switch mechanism. Featuring a coil spring that sits between the keycap and a pivoting hammer that collapses when pressed, the spring provides a loud click and tactile feedback.
Model M-Inspired Keycaps
The keycaps are made of PBT polymer and the dye-sublimated legends compliment the authentic feel and classic design.
