81-key keyboard assembly for the IBM 2603 ThinkPad 500 subnotebook laptop. It has an integrated TrackPoint II pointing stick but its two buttons are not a part of the keyboard itself. The 2603 keyboard is presently the earliest known Model M6-1 keyboard assembly and manages to fit almost all the keys of a winkeyless tenkeyless keyboard into a footprint smaller than any classic-style ThinkPad keyboard. It has golden modifier, lock and utility key legends and an overlay numeric keypad with vibrant blue legends.
