Although the second generation version of the Freewrite distraction-free smart typewriter has been available for several months already, I realized that in that time I failed to officially note the presence of this update to Armchair Arcade‘s readership. As described in my review of the first generation version of the Freewrite, this unique product is a fantastic way to minimize distractions and get down to the business of writing. The second generation version is not only available in an additional color (Limited Edition cream), but also features several key improvements. These improvements include double the already super long battery life of several weeks and tweaks to the similarly already superb Cherry MX Brown-based keyboard.
While this is by no means an inexpensive device, it is a premium offering, and definitely a worthwhile investment if you fancy yourself a writer. This is a great tool for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), poetry, short stories, or any other type of writing where you want to generate a lot of content with as few distractions as possible.
