Hi, Allison,

At some point in school I learned to type using the "new" IBM Selectrics.

I love your phrase, "plastic waffle." How true.

Hi, all.

Monique's question reminded me of the keyboards I still mourn as I clack away on the latest plastic waffle that came with my latest desktop computer.

Best keyboard EVAH: IBM Selectric II.

Oh, wait, maybe I should conbfine myself the digital age!


Second best keyboard: Various rock-solid IBM keyboards of the late 80s and early 90s. I missed each one after I'd moved on to another computer, but they were all good.

Third best keyboard: Corded keyboard I saved on a whim before recycling my Micron WhateverItWas four or five years ago. Boy was I glad I kept it when my wireless Logitech keyboard didn't work when I had to hit F10 during the boot sequence when I got the Black Screen of Death. It has a nice touch, too.

Everything feels -- and sounds -- like a tinkertoy compared to those early keyboards.

Do you still miss a particular keyboard?
