Would like to get a better letter quality printer for my 800XL
than our 1027.  My wife likes Atariwriter software and is 
interested in a Panasonic T-30 word processor/typewriter which
has a computer interface capability.

Is it possible to use this Panasonic with our current system?
If so, what else would we need?

         Most word processors,
  including Atari Writer come with a
  handlers for commonly used
  printers.  Most also provide a
  utility to allow you to make one if
  your printer is not supported.  So
  the answer to your question is a
  qualified yes.  As for what it will
  take to connect your printer?  You
  will probably need an PR: or other
  interface.  These run between $50
  and $100.  If you are on an ST, you
  may not need anything but a cable.
  Check the manual that came with
  your Printer.
