Quick background-- I really love old school springy/mechanical keyboards. I haven't used one in years but it's been on my "to purchase" list for years to get an IBM Model-M for my work.
After doing a bit of research, I might be interested in giving a Northgate Omnikey a try. I've found a few reviews comparing the Model-M vs. the 101 and I'm about ready to buy a "classic" clicky-keyboard.
However, after deciding to try and find a 101, I've found that 102's are easily discoverable on eBay but I can't find a 101. This leads me to ask the question-- is the 102 the same as a 101? My biggest hope is that at least the configurational dip switches are the same. I'd like to try a Dvorak setup, and that was the main reason why I decided to try the Northgate over the IBM keyboard.
If anyone has a definitive answer, I'd appreciate your advice. I couldn't find any specifics on the differences, even on wikipedia. It seems that both devices are treated the same.
