I know that it has a PS/2 connection and my computer is USB but I thought that I could use some kind of adapter that would make the connection.
I've read so many posts about others that bought this keyboard and they seemed like they were using it with a regular computer .
Could anyone tell me if this right that I can't use this keyboard with a regular computer?
If so, I have been looking for one of these as well. Would you mind sharing the website where you are thinking about buying it from?
I already have an IBM Model M (1987, model 1390131) and am using a converter and a $5 adapter to convert it from AT to PS/2 to USB. It is working successfully. If you know for sure that the SpaceSaver II has a PS/2 connection, I don't see why it wouldn't work on your desktop or my laptop. I'm not familiar with what "servers" use.
Google Shopping is reporting 3 websites, all of them selling near $100. But again, please share where you found the online store. Thanks!
Yes, I went ahead and ordered it and had no problem connecting it to my computer. It does have the PS/2 connections and my computer had them too so it was very easy to just connect it and it started working immediately. I really like it so far and am glad that I got it.
The online site that I bought it from is called ServerSupply.com; they had the lowest price I could find for 117.00 with free shipping. Their delivery also was very fast. I received a shipping notice and a UPS Tracking number the very same day and received it two days later. If there had not been Veteran's day in between I wondered if I may have gotten it the next day. I can recommend both.
What I have always wondered about though, was why did IBM chop the numeric keypad off the right side? Why did they not remove the cursor keys in the next section (adjacent to the numeric keypad)? The cursor control keys were duplicated in the numeric keypad and so should not have been missed.
