Although electronic typewriters are still being manufactured, the last of the manual machines are up for sale as the last Indian company to make them is shutting down production. However, typewriters will likely continue to be sold amongst collectors like Richard Polt, who owns 250 of them. He says that one of the best reasons to use a typewriter today is that they come without the distractions of being on a computer (like the Internet).
