(Photography note: the keys are white-on-black, not gold as they appear here. The light was less-than-ideal in these shots.)
Maybe it's a little unhealthy, but I really can't stop looking at this machine. Some of it is giddiness over getting it at a price I can agree with, part of it is just for it typing so darn well right out of the case, except for some hangups now and then that I'm attributing to rails in need of cleaning. I don't have very many black-lacquer machines in my collection, but boy is this nice. And the basket ("floating") shift is a treat, especially with that lovely key design.
Yes, I've gone a little crazy. Haven't we all been there, basking in the warm afterglow of a new acquisition?
