Wyse 00-600-02 None Alps SKCL Green (no LED; SP:LB, L:N) 1010001065 98-043-01 REV B geekhack.org No idea what this is — none of the numbers on the back turn up a single thing. The PCB is marked “C WYSE TECHNOLOGY 1984” and from the switches, it’s unlikely to be much newer than that.

deskthority.net Due to drastic lack of details or photographs, very little is known about this keyboard, so I'm compelled to leave most details blank.
