The Modular 67-Key POS Keyboard is the direct successor to the Models M7 and M7-1 50-key RPOS Keyboards and is occasionally referred to as the M7-e in fan circles. Announced in 2008 alongside the MANPOS and MCANPOS Keyboards, as the name implies, the M7-e adds 17 keys over its 50-key predecessor whilst retaining the same core layout as the M7/M7-1 to allow for some familiarity for IBM's customers upon upgrading and preserve application-level compatibility. Being an MPOS series device, the MSR and key-lock are now modular attachments instead of fixed components. After buying IBM Retail Store Solutions, Toshiba TEC has produced and marketed this keyboard design since 2012 and it remains in production.
