I see Stylewriter II's and 1200's for under $10 at various thrift stores. I'm using a Color Stylewriter 1500 (adequate for the amount of color printing I do!) that I picked up for less than $7.00....

So a Color Stylewriter 1500 is an HP, not a Canon? Except for the case, the guts look EXACTLY like a Stylewriter 1200; they even use the same BW ink cartridge. Perhaps the 1200 was also made by HP,...
