This keyboard is used in:
- 1984. original Macintosh (aka Macintosh 128k)
- 1984. Macintosh 512k.
- 1986. Macintosh 512Ke.
The keyboard did not have cursor keys. Steve Jobs purposely had left them out of the original Macintosh keyboard to encourage software developers to make software with mouse control. Following Jobs's departure, Apple released the Macintosh Plus with the Apple M0110A keyboard which does have cursor keys.
The keyboard uses Alps SKCC series switches. The switches are typically, if not always, cream. Caps lock uses a latching variant of the switch with a shorter slider; the keycap contains a raised stem to compensate. The keycaps are thick and tall PBT with dye-sub legends.[2022-05-31 from https://deskthority.net/wiki/Apple_M0110]
