To be honest, just talking about this, I feel really old already. A lot of our new generation does not know much about typewriters, and hence, neither its pros nor cons. Whenever they buy a new device, they are not buying it with a complete informed decision. So if you have never heard about a typewriter and you are about to enter college soon, this article could be quite helpful to you.
Are you not tired of typing out your documents or assignments on your laptop, saving the document after every few seconds, emailing it to yourself, and then going all the way to a library or any nearest printing store to access your email, download it, print it, and then pay for it? The coolest thing about getting a typewriter is that it is extremely instantaneous! As old as it is, we do not have such technology nowadays. With a typewriter, “printing” your assignments out becomes much easier… or rather instantaneous!
Another hidden advantage that a typewriter comes with is that it keeps you focus on the task at hand. If you end up typing up your assignment on a PC, there is a very high chance that you will easily get distracted by any social media, memes, or any other videos. However, when you type on a typewriter, there is nothing else to distract you; you are very focused on whatever you are typing, so there are less chances of error.
Seize The Culture!
Another reason why I would encourage students to get a typewriter is for them to have something they only see on TV now. A vintage typewriter can help them preserve that old culture, and it even looks and feels cool at the same time!
