Variant of a Model M2 Selectric Touch Keyboard with Expanded Border

The bordered variant of the Model M2 was a Quiet Touch rubber dome-only variant of the PC-compatible M2 designed to mimic the footprint of an IBM Enhanced Keyboard. The frame that provides the border has no technical purpose and the rest of the keyboard is the same as a standard Model M2. Such M2s were apparently made exclusively for IBM EduQuest PCs.
