Variant of a Model M7 50-Key RPOS MSR Keyboard

The Model M7 is a 50-key point of sale keyboard with an integrated magnetic stripe card reader in the Retail POS (RPOS) series of POS input devices. The M7 was originally known as the IBM Retail POS Keyboard with Card Reader. Its earliest host system was the IBM 4694 POS Terminal Model 001 announced in June 1993 and it was a successor to the IBM 4680 series 50-Key Modifiable Layout Keyboard. For the most part, the layout and function of the M7 are customisable and the keypad has many transparent keytops to facilitate printed or written legends on paper. However, almost all M7s have a dedicated numeric keypad in the middle key bank and a "Ctrl" key in the top-left. After Toshiba TEC acquired the IBM Retail Store Solutions division in 2012, they continued producing the M7 under their own branding.
