Be honest, how many of you are going to waste money on buying one of these monstrosities?
Jesus Christ how horrifying.
I am looking for a cheap word processing device to use though. Something with no connection to the internet and without any other features so I can write without distractions.
Any recommended devices?
fucking stupid hipster shit
Either turn your internet off or have some fucking discipline and not click on all your porn tabs while you're trying to work. Like $350 really? Should be a $35 dollar toy.
Also while you're getting addons, download f.lux, good for your eyes
Seems like the sort of thing a white middle class woman from SoCal would buy, to sit and write femdom erotica while sipping a mocca latte at Starbucks.
In other words, fuck no. I ain't buying that shit.
HOW ARE PEOPLE ACTUALLY BUYING THIS
You can buy a fucking laptop on Amazon for 200 bucks, right now!
>he doesn't even have a legit working Adler Tippa typwritter from the 50s' that will work forever if well maintained.
>he's just using it as a writing tool, not a percussion rig on jam nights.
>He doesn't know a life without a delete/erase feature and can never experience the feeling of labouring over every word in order to have perfect page after writing, and the satisfaction that comes with it.
>he thinks that flat, quasi-tablet is cool.
I would never take my typewriter to starbucks (or even go to a fucking starbucks) but I feel like that gay ass thing would look more fucking stupid than an actual typewriter.
>Implying a lack of spell check and no eraser feature won't make me a better writer in the long run.
>Implying my daily writing is based on time, not word/page output.
Just how am I supposed to ride the tiger if your typewriter doesn't have SS-runen?
This shit here is even more useless, take a look at qwerkywriter!
>bluetooth, mechanical switches, fedora-tier design, 329$
Oh shit. Now I need that.
By contrast an Alphasmart Neo or similar tools designed primarily for special needs education (review of a neo is anyone's wondering: http://geardiary.com/2010/07/25/the-alphasmart-neo-the-ultimate-draft-writing-tool/, and before anyone asks, no there appears to be no generic term for these kinds of products) can be bought for less than $200 and are a hell of a lot smaller and more practical.
i'm jelly as fuck of this thing
>Hey babe can you stand in the doorway for a second? Yeah right there. I want to show the boys on /lit/ my art room but I want them to know I have a girlfriend too
What a piece of shit you are
Seems a bit odd since laptops and typewriters already exist. I appreciate that the apps you can get for your laptop are basically useless unless you are retarded and self discipline isn't a realistic long term solution, but shit, just get a pen and paper.
Is your hand going to fall off or something? If you're getting cramp then you're writing too quickly anyway. Or pick up an actual typewriter for pennies.
Is this a Japanese amazon thing?
As expected of Glorious Nippon
arch + vim/emcas without network
work for me
got to love that thinkpad
