The new keyboard database finder is an upcoming alternative method for searching the keyboard part number database. This long-awaited replacement for the original form-based keyboard database finder takes the form of an interactive quiz that should enable you to 'hone' in on a keyboard and its part number based on your visual and feature preferences or known facts of a keyboard you're trying to reverse search.
As this is a preview, operational bugs are to be expected. If you encounter an issue, please report it.
So, what can you do with this? Basically, you take a five-question quiz and the database will try to find IBM (and Lexmark, Unicomp, etc.) keyboard part numbers based on your answers. This is could be used for:
Finding out if a particular style and function of IBM keyboard you want exists
Reverse-searching a keyboard you know exists but don't know any part numbers for
