Was using one in university in 2000. Couldn't afford anything else. :P

I used to use one to fill out score reporting sheets as a soccer referee in the early 2000's. It was a portable typewriter and I definitely appreciated the mechanical aspect of it. Makes me want to dig it out now!

My personal laptop's keyboard has a distinctive "dip" in it, where I got a tad frustrated one day...
