    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?

    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
