The Ultimate Retro Laptop

This is definitely a Laptop after my heart! For sale on etsy from usbtypewriter for $599.00


This Royal Aristocrat has been modified to work as a USB Keyboard for PC, Mac, and even iPad! That's right -- its a beautiful and fully functional computer keyboard!

This USB Typewriter works with all letters, numerals, and punctuation marks. It also includes shift, space, and return carriage (which is literally activated by the typewriter's return carriage!). Many non-standard keys, such as F1-F12, esc, ctrl, and so on are available with a special toggle key.

If you are worried about waking the neighbors with the clacking sound of the keys, just put a cotton ball on the platen and the typewriter will run silently.  
But isn't that what you really want!! I know, I would.

This USB Typewriter comes in the original carrying case. The modification is very clean leaves the typewriter looking, feeling, and working like a regular typewriter -- and yes, it still writes beautifully on paper. A beautiful, functional, unique addition to your home office.

Hat Tip to Bill Crider

This is so ME! I own two old Royal typewriters, one a wide carriage. Love the sounds they make.
