I used an Atari computer (400, 800, 130XE) and an Epson 500LQ (24 pin impact), an Epson Actionlaser II (laser), an Okimate 10 (color) and an Atari 1027 when I was in school.  My first true appreciation of the power of a computer came when I was printing the final draft of a 30 page paper.  I was reading the pages as they came off the 1027.  At the bottom of page six, I read something which was correct but could have been said better.  I stopped the printer, made the change, and continues printing.  Had the paper been typed, there is no way I would have retyped it to improve the text.  Atari made me a better writer and student.
