Mi reseña va dirigida, más que al artículo, al vendedor. Compré esta Olivetti, pero por un fallo de la propia máquina y uno mío, comprendí que no se ajustaba a lo que buscaba. La cambié por una Olympia. Inicié un contacto con el vendedor. El trato fue de lo más cercano, amable y rápido. Así pues, esta opinión va dirigida hacia los escépticos como yo. Confiad en este vendedor, cumple con creces la calificación en esta aplicación. Espero haber ayudado en algo a alguien.
