Vintage Shopping: IBM Model M Keyboard
Back in the age of eight-bit Nintendo, a computer keyboard was a real piece of hardware: It had heft, and the durability of a typewriter. Now beloved retro incarnations like IBM's Model M are experiencing a renaissance. Introduced in 1985, it's the Stradivarius of keyboards, favored by Wii-era programmers and novelists alike. Get one from a computer-relic specialist like ClickyKeyboards, and file the Model M between Madonna and Morrissey in your eighties-nostalgia bank.
