You know that you need a Model M keyboard. Proceed directly to Unicomp, do not pass Go. I wrote about my Model M keyboard awhile back (one of many posts rendered image-free --somewhat problematic when you're talking typecasts-- in the great web hosting migration disaster of 2008) and recently had the opportunity to provide a rambling sound bite to Martin Kaste of NPR on the topic.
Here is the story, which discusses Unicomp's noble effort to carry forward buckling spring technology into the 21st century. I own an old Model M from Lexmark, made in 1995 and purchased from eBay, but Unicomp has a solid advantage to consider: they come with a built-in USB port. This is no small matter-- the original keyboards come with a PS/2 port, and sometimes present a challenge to interface with your computer. Unicomp also make custom keyboards for gamers and operating systems, I believe.
If you're typing on a disposable rubber dome keyboard made in China at this moment, think again. You too could instead enjoy the clatter of an indestructible, IBM Selectric-like keyboard, while bringing business to one of the last companies in the US committed to mechanical integrity in peripheral devices.
