      I move the Model M keyboards, I use them on two main computers at got them off of eBay about five or six years ago, and they are working perfectly to this day.  I find that I can type faster on the Model M’s with less errors than on the more modern keyboards.  I can go from my Selectric II to the PC with no problems adapting to the keys.

      The IBM Model M is just a touch softer than the Selectric, but it's
      adaptable to pretty much any modern machine. And you can buy a brand
      new one with Windows keys and everything from Unicomp. It's my favorite
      keyboard.

      Peace... Sridhar
