1970 Olympia SF De Luxe Serial # 2123896 1970 Olympia SF De Luxe typewriter, Serial # 2123896 Alexander Pearson's 1970 Olympia SF De Luxe typewriter. 2022-01-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alexander Pearson: 1970 Olympia SF De Luxe Serial # 2123896 The SF De Luxe is the sturdiest ultraportable I've come across. I can imagine taking it into a warzone and not sweating about it returning in one piece (with me, I'd hope). It types as well as many larger portables. The touch is probably too heavy for typists who are used to writing with light-touch ultraportables (Olivettis, for example). The only function missing that some rival ultraportables have is a tabulator. Then again, if you're super keen on a tabulator, you're probably not going to be typing all the time on an ultraportable.
