  2. And I thought his favorite was the Optima M10! I suppose he needs both a machine for his office in the Death Star and a portable for when he's on the go.

  4. Even numbers on shift! That's a new one I haven't seen before - economical.

    1. Yes exactly, no frills and stripped down to the bare minimum. This is as far as function goes. The form however is very sophisticated and looks like the result of a design competition, which is in remarkable contrast with the first feature. Richard tells us all about the Rem 3 HERE.

    2. And Robert features Herbert Bridgwater's design patent HERE.

  5. I can picture young Anakin using a battered Remington 3B modified with digital output for programming Threepio. That could explain a lot.

  7. I feel a disturbance in the force - as if the red/black ribbon has been installed upside-down ON PURPOSE!
