I guess its not strictly a "daisy wheel" since it uses the IBM
selectric ball type element, but I used to print my "letter quality"
documents on an IBM selectric typewriter style thingy that operated at
134.5 baud. It felt *painfully* slow even though I was accustomed to
300 baud serial terminals on an acoustic coupler style modem. I also
remember it being *very* heavy, like 100+ lbs.
<http://www.multicians.org/mga.html> describes an IBM 2741 as being
part of a desk, but the unit I remember was a tabletop model. Not
exactly "portable", but it could be moved like a typewriter. (Even a
regular Selectric typewriter is heavy!)
If the 2741 is what I'm remembering (the number sounds correct), I
would love to add one to my collection!
