Illuminated Keyboard with IBM Model M Feel?

Hello, I am searching for a new keyboard that is illuminated AND has the feel of the old IBM Model M keyboards.  You know the ones; with a solid "clack" sound when the key is depressed.

The only one I've found so far is the Deck Legend.

Actually, I did find one from Logitech (,EN) that says it "Gives you more key travel than typical notebook keyboards." but I don't think it's got the feel I'm looking for.

Anyone know of any others, aside from the Deck?

Hi, I appreciate your reply, however I don't think that will be what I'm looking for.  In the description is says it has a "soft touch" and I guess I'm looking for the opposite.  I'd like something with a mechanical switch so there is a definite "click" when the key is successfully depressed.  There are some out there (aside from the old IBM's I mentioned in the original post), but I'm hoping to find one with the solid key touch that is illuminated.

Thanks anyway!
I've read some reviews about it, they say it isn't that clicky nor soft, an average one, so if you are looking for a very clicky then you would never find something like the org IBM even deck not to be compared with IBM, anyhow it is difficult to find illuminated and clicky, because the mechanical keys require LED under every key which makes it expensive like Deck, but it would never be cheaper than that. So Get Deck and enjoy.
