Available in both PS/2 and USB.  I have one of each; they accidentally
shipped one PS/2 when I ordered both as USB.

On the PS/2 model I use one of these Sabrent PS2-to-USB adapters:

Note: if you're using this with a Mac, *do not* get one of the "fancy"
expensive adapters from here:


I bought one of those, and found out that every time I rebooted the Mac, I
had to unplug/replug the keyboard from the USB adapter in order to properly
re-init it and get the system to recognize it.  I switched to the
half-the-price Sabrent adapter, and it works just fine.
