It's the Casio CW-50. Staples had them on sale for a while. They come with
a cartridge, and you can get several colors. There are two disadvantages
you should think about...

1. The cartridges are *way* overpriced at $10 each, and can do about 30
CDs. It also advances itself each time it ejects the disk, wasting some
tape. The mechanism and price are absurd, so I'm looking for some raw reels
of transfer tape to refill these puppies.

2. The resolution of the software in this particular model isn't very good
-- it's got the jaggies. It's okay if you use emphatic type fonts, but not
really good for fine detail.

If I had the cash to do it again, I'd get an upscale model. :)
