The Model M is also regarded as a timeless and durable piece of hardware. Although the computers and computer peripherals produced concurrently with the Model M are considered obsolete, many Model M keyboards are still in use due to their physical durability and the continued validity of their ANSI 101-key and ISO 102-key layouts, through the use of a PS/2 female to USB male adapter with a built-in level converter. Since their original popularity, new generations of writers and computer technicians have rediscovered their unique functionality and aesthetics.
This keyboard works but is in need of some replacement keycaps and a new cable wired internally to the chip. Great for parts or a project.
