1983 Olivetti Praxis 20 Serial # 1054694 1983 Olivetti Praxis 20 typewriter, Serial # 1054694 Steven Kuterescz's 1983 Olivetti Praxis 20 typewriter. 2017-05-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Steven Kuterescz: 1983 Olivetti Praxis 20 Serial # 1054694 Circa 1983 but could be a year or two later.
Released in 1983, the Olivetti Praxis 20 was the simplest in Olivetti's line of portable electronic typewriters - a category of typewriter described in various computing magazines at the time as "plain vanilla" technology - this having nothing to do with the typewriter's colour (vanilla pods also being dark brown) but a succinct way of describing an electronic typewriter with no special or extra features.
