But the  best computer keyboard ever had was that with the Kaypro -any former
Kaypro  owner/users out there? CPM LUGgable with, as I recall, a pair of  
floppy drives. Metal case. Weighed a ton. And what a great  keyboard.

I meant to post that myself.  I started with a Kaypro, because the  keyboard 
was a true clone of an IBM Selectric, big return key and all .   The 
looked like Air Force surplus something, but it was magic.
I was helping edit a book that was being written on a Kaypro.  I was  so 
impressed, I went out and bought one myself.  Still remember driving  with 
who wasn't even walking yet to the computer store.  He's 21  now.
