The Best Keyboard Ever

Unicomp Keyboard I’m typing this on my new Unicomp keyboard. It cost about $70 but it was worth it. I’m showing my age again, but it’s a throwback to the great old IBM keyboards. Unicomp bought the technology from Lexmark which was itself spun off from IBM.

The keyboard uses the buckling spring technology developed by IBM and provides that clicking sound I like so much. (And my cubicle neighbors used to hate.) That old IBM technology is coupled with a modern USB connector. While I just got this one it seems as sturdy as the keyboards I remember and is solidly built. Not even close to the cheap plastic keyboard I’d been using. And the clicking makes me nostalgic.

Unicomp has various keyboard models available at pckeyboard.com. The one I got is called the Customizer and is pictured above.
