I printed my dissertation on one of those!  Do you know how many 
font wheels you have to use to get all the math, greek and geek 
(chemistry) symbols to print?  The chem department had a set of 12 
different wheels and it took 9 of them to print my dissertation.

Then my thesis advisor got an HP Laserjet III.  It took two hours to 
print the final version as opposed to about 8 hours on the Diablo.  
The Diablo print was clearer and prettier though.
