I just purchased an Olivetti MS 25 Premier Plus typewriter for $8 at my local Goodwill store. It is a small typewriter, with a snap-on carrying lid. It weighs about 10 pounds. The primary material of the typewriter is plastic. It is quiet (especially for a plastic typewriter), the print quality is good, and the styling is pretty good. It has one problem, which fixes itself--sometimes the keys "lock up." The solution is to let the key fall back down, and press it again. The typewriter is good, but not for the $100+ that it sells for new. (It is great for $8-$12) Ironically, it is better than the Studio 44 I once owned (it had too heavy of a touch). This typewriter is still being made today.
