The Unicomp New Model M was the first new Model M design introduced in almost twenty years when it launched in 2020. It's essentially the successor to the Unicomp Ultra Classic, taking up the market position of a reduced-bezel but full-size Model M. Stylistically, the New Model M is much closer than its predecessor to a typical Model M design. In fact, it resembles a full-size version of the IBM Space Saving Keyboard matching its depth and height profile, however, unlike the SSK, the side bezels were reduced in width.
