If an 1152x900 will do, I think I might have one I haven't used in
years.  (I haven't touched it in years, which is why I'm not sure.)
But they're heavy little buggers, so unless you're close to Montreal it
may not be worth the cost to get it to you.

Quite.  I normally use type-3 keyboards even on more recent machines;
the type-3 is the second-best keyboard type I've used.  (A type-3 in
good shape, that is; a type-3 in bad shape can border on unusable.)
