I have a couple of buckling-spring Unicomps as well as IBM model M's, 
and while I would agree that the IBM version is more heavily built, I 
think the Unicomp is of reasonable quality.  At least for people who 
don't plan to use it as a deadly weapon.

It would have been nice if they had made the cable detachable though.

Also, I'm not sure it's fair to call Unicomp a "clone", as I understand 
it they were either an OEM for IBM, or acquired the production assets 
from them, or something along those lines.  Pretty close to the real 
thing in my view.
