Documentation couldn't get any better than this. However, offices where you work on papers are often quiet, which can annoy the staff next to you. In that case, giving a buckling keyboard as a gift will make him addicted.

I have been using the same type M since 1992! It was new in the box for $5.00, how could I pass it up? It has been flawless ever since and I use it daily. This is still the pinical of Keyboards and mine has a date code of 17 Jan 87. They are not fancy but they just don't die and they feel and sound fantastic! They make your fingers wanna type.
