difficult to duplicate exactly, this keyboard. Don't stick the dumb inverted T keypad on andclaim it is the same, it isn't. And it doesn't have to cost over
My OmniKey Ultra, made by long gone Northgate, unfortunately died in the mid 1990's (some of the key springs stopped working). Another company (Avant) started making, and still sells clones of the keyboard for $189 (called the Avant Stellar) in the 1990's. I missed my original OmniKey so much that I bought the Stellar. Big mistake... its performance didn't match its name. The same Northgate quality just wasn't there. The keys had the same conguration and click, but it felt like they used cheap springs on the keys (it felt flimsier). The keys started sticking within a year ( typing an "a" would result in "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa", etc), and at less than one year old, ended up in the garbage can. I still miss the original. Sadly, quality seems to be an afterthought in modern keyboards.

The big problem is converting data to Excel for the casual users. That is what Excel is meant for - casual users.
