    Retro indeed–that typewriter sort of looks like it was designed by the same folks who did the old Apple IIe or the Commodore 64. I’d date it between ’77 – ’80.

    It’s not that great a deal after all.
    They get you with the cost of the ribbons (yeah, remember the ribbons?)

    Isn’t that the typewriter the CBS memos were typed on?
