0441&cntry=840&lang=en_US or call 1 888 SHOPIBM and give the number to a person.
$39 is pretty stiff for just the splitter, especially when you consider there
are people selling the IBM keyboard with the Trackpoint for $35 and it COMES
with a splitter.
Belkin makes one also that I've seen in Best Buy for approx. $20, and I've
gotten generic ones for as little as $12. It's been my experience that if you
find a generic one and the connecters are marked as to which is for the keyboard
and which for the mouse (don't laugh, I've seen some that aren't!) they'll work
