Pros: 1. Unlimited battery life 2. It never replaces a word I type with something grossly inappropriate 3. I never have to drive 20 miles to an Apple store so someone can teach me how to use it 4. It's a great hand/wrist workout (carpal tunnel wasn't an issue back in the day) and 5. Although it doesn't come with a warranty it's still working after 83 years, so I figure there is an extremely good chance it will outlast the measly one year warranty on most of my electronic gadgets. Cons: Slowest internet connection EVER!!
