A battered Geac

Cute writing found by i_heart_lolis on a Geac 8340, an 80's library computer keyboard.

Cute writing I found on an 80's library computer keyboard takes communicating through the keyboard to the next level – i_heart_lolis.

As BillyBuerger points out, this is a Geac 8340 and there's a thread about this vintage keyboard model used in libraries on Deskthority.

The writing on the case says:

"This is like playing ATARI!"

Indeed, the arrow cluster on the right side resembles that of an Atari.

And finally, another photo with more Geac keyboards:
