About this keyboard type
The IBM Compact ANPOS (CANPOS) Keyboard was the first wholly new and most notable "Model M-e" keyboard design introduced in 2002 and a part of the pre-Modular (pre-MPOS) series. CANPOS fits a full-size keyboard with many programmable keys in a chassis that is a similar width to a tenkeyless keyboard. In total, CANPOS Keyboards have 133 (US English) or 134 (rest of world) keys. Additionally, all alphanumeric keys are slightly thinner compared to their M9 RANPOS, M-e PS/2 ANPOS and later M-e MANPOS counterparts. CANPOS lacked any sort of keylock.
