Default Need help finding a certain kind of keyboard

I am looking into a mod project that requires a "clicky" mechanical key style keyboard (think 80's IBM) and I am trying to find one with multimedia hotkeys. Finding a mechanical keyboard is easy enough, but finding one with hotkeys has proven trouble sum. Even though they are still manufactured today, most of them seem to be a throwback to the 80's keyboard and do not include any new fancy buttons.

I've become rather partial to my volume controls and cut/copy/paste buttons

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

IBM model M keyboards

They should have what you are looking for.

Thanks, though I'm not finding one with multimedia hotkeys, they seem knowledgeable about mechanical keyboards so perhaps they could tell me if one even exists.
