    I'm currently bidding on an IBM keyboard (1370477). However, I was looking at the PS/2 pin layout in one of the pictures and I noticed that it was only using 4 pins. I have an ergonomic, curved Microsoft keyboard with plunger keys that uses PS/2 and it has all 6 pins. Should I be concerned with the discrepancy?

    If it is the one being sold by TAZSONIC3 on eBay, I looked at it too. The two pins that are missing aren't needed. The keyboard only needs 5VDC, ground, data and clock.
