Today we look at a special type of IBM Model M keyboard, the M13. With its integrated Trackpoint II pointing stick and slick black paint job it’s one of the more memorable, yet rare-ish, buckling spring keyboards. This one is p/n 13H6705.

I’m Thomas and I do videos and reviews on mechanical keyboards ranging from the most sickening modern RGB gaming keyboards to vintage hardware relics, or sometimes keycaps or keyswitches ranging from Cherry MX to Alps SKCM to IBM buckling springs and anything in between.

The practice sentence was: “Hello my name is Thomas and I’m typing on an IBM Model M13 right now. This has to be one of the sexiest-looking vintage keyboards out there. What a fantastic symphony of evil this is!”
