One of the best features of the Model 100 is its keyboard, in fact the
designers sacrificed screen size to allow the keys to be full size and a
good feel. That's another thing that made them so polular with reporters.

As to where to get them, we're back to garage sales, swap meets and
second-hand shops. The SO would kill me if I let one go myself.
