It's a type used by old IBM systems.

-How hard are these to find in the wild?
-Does anyone other than Unicomp manufacture them nowadays?
-What other types are there that use this layout?

That's not a Model M...Well, that's the only distinctive feature of Unicomp products, so what would you call it?

Or are you referring to the 122-key layout? In that case, I would suggest Googling for <122-key>.

If I knew, I would've mentioned the name of it in the title. And I provided a picture, and Unicomp does manufacture that layout. AFAIK that is a distinctive feature.

Yep, but I can't find any other company that makes them other then Unicomp.

I was going to say, I have a white model-m for trade, but it's not that layout, it's a regular 101key
