If you pay attention on Perixx's products, it is not difficult to spot that the letter(s) following the model name refers to its colour. For example, Periboard-612W the "W" means white, Periboard-713PK the "PK" means pink.
Then, what does the "M" mean in Periboard-106M?
At the very beginning, I don't know either. Therefore, I went to ask my big boss, Jonah, the founder of Perixx. And he threw me back to 1980s.
"Do you know Model-M?"
Obviously, I don't. I shook my head.
"Then, you search IBM and Model-M."
OOOOh, now I get it. I nodded my head.
