This article offers several candidates:
One I remember here in Australia was the Tandy (Radio Shack) TRS-80
Color Computer 1 with the rubber "chiclet" keyboard. From memory the
key spacing was closer than normal, though the small keytops may have
been deceptive; the stroke is definitely in the right ballpark (later
CoCo 2 keyboards were "full travel".)
Good luck with your quest.
