The Classic Manual Typewriter is a new, retro-typer that will lend your writing the inspirational click-clacking enjoyed by many celebrated 20th Century authors.

Word processing is over. Who in their right mind uses MS Word these days anyway? It’s probably about the least cool thing you can do with a computer. What’s more, computerized word processing encourages laziness and incompetence; it allows you to make mistakes knowing they can be easily corrected, and not even bother learning to spell or use grammar because the spell and grammar checkers will do the hard work for you. What is needed is a game-changer in the written-word industry. That game-changer has arrived in the form of the Classic Manual Typewriter from Hammacher Schlemmer.

Yes, it’s an old-fashioned type-writer. It goes click-clack when you type. You can’t delete anything (unless you want to go to the trouble of using tippex and winding the thingy back), and it probably does all of the formatting you would do in Word, such as margins and, um, letters and stuff. BUT, it’s actually easier to align text to things like forms, labels and envelopes, as you can see exactly where the text is going to go – without printing out endless copies of the same thing as you fight with your printer and argue with your word processor.

The Classic Manual Typewriter is lightweight and robust and comes with black and red ribbons supplied, so you can get typing like it’s the olden days straight away.

Stop processing your words and start writing them for $159.95.

Just begging to be scrutinized/torn apart by typo/punctuation zealots.

Pre-emptive editor’s note: “Oh that? That was intentional.”
