Keyboard Model Numbers & Feature Codes

This is a list of various marketing model numbers and feature codes IBM and family used for their keyboards. Model numbers were sometimes used as a more consumer-friendly identifier for keyboards compared to part numbers, as model numbers are not language/layout exclusive like part numbers. Alternatively, feature codes were 4 or so digit codes IBM sometimes assigned to its products for use when ordering a product.

Note

This page excludes most Model B, Model F and Model M designations as they were not typically used as part of their respective keyboards' standard consumer marketing. To learn about variants of those keyboard families, please refer to the IBM Model B keyboards, IBM Model F keyboards and IBM Model M keyboards wiki pages.
