...typing for peace, democracy, and the glory of the Typosphere
If you can find one in your price range, you will never regret getting it. A 3000 will quickly become your favorite for actually typing. (:
I know, I know... I should have bid £50. Next time...
'if they start to become too valuable that defeats the object' I so agree with that point. Typewriters are so beautiful, and can last forever (or as good as), unlike the disposable electronic three year life span VDUs people crave now. Typewriters are real and we should all be able to enjoy them.
...and there's a lovely gold plated Royal on ebay right now!
gold plated! gold plated! don't do it!
...one from Richard's stable: http://site.xavier.edu/polt/typewriters/royalgold.jpgDon't worry. Neither preWW2, nor black, nor Hermes 3000. Be-gone cold sweat, phew, close thing.
No, I'm sorry that Royal looks ridiculous.

I'm with you. Price is first on the list. If it's high I know it's wanted but if it goes begging I'm a sucker.
