    I was wondering where's the best place to find one, there's none on eBay, Amazon, Gumtree...

    I live in the UK so no Craigslist :)

    Also, why is Craigslist not an option in the UK? *confused*

    Yep, that's the one.

    And sorry, I didn't word it properly, I live near Cardiff, Wales. There's barely anything on the Cardiff site in terms of vintage Mac stuff. In fact I haven't seen a single Mac on there. Take a look, it's like a ghost town, http://cardiff.craigslist.co.uk/

    I've looked on Amazon (both US and UK), and while there's nothing in the UK store, there are some available from the US store. There are also plenty on Ebay (both UK and US). You could also try brick-and-mortar secondhand stores and even thrift stores.

    I don't know much about the 6100 but as long as it's ADB it's okay. I'm not looking for a particular model just an ADB keyboard :)

    Goftrey - if you have no luck on ebay (previous poster - seems to think there's a few on ebay here in the UK) drop me a pm or post on here - it's possible I might have one up in the loft and I can go up there and investigate...

    Nope, can't find any on eBay in the UK, there's a few in US cheap but the postage on average is about £30 ($45)...

    ----------

    My PM's haven't been working lately so I'll have to post it here.

    I can't find any on eBay in the UK so I'm interested. :)

    Ok, I'll come back to you tomorrow (I'll try and get up there tonight). No guarantees though - I do know I've got a couple of old Macs up there and if there's a spare keyboard (I think I might have had an old Macally at some point in addition to the Apple supplied ones) you can have it. You'd need to cough up for the postage but that's all.

    I'll come back to you. Have you got an email address I can drop you a line to you directly?

    Just out of curiosity, what do you want it for, anyway?

    Well I'm on the hunt for a Macintosh Classic I/II

    I've found one that doesn't have a keyboard, a mouse or a power cable, so I think I'll have more of a chance of getting it at a cheaper price. I have an ADB mouse anyway so there's no worries there and I have at least half a dozen spare power cables too. I said to myself if I can get a keyboard I'll have a go at getting it.
