Alphasmart is a company that makes portable word processors (similar to a typewriter, usually consisting of a keyboard and a small display.) They are very popular among Wrimos who don't want the distraction or the expense of a laptop. The Alphasmart Neo is the most common model seen, but this particular model is no longer produced by Alphasmart.

Nanowrimo headquarters maintains a library of Alphasmart Neos (as well as old laptops donated for Wrimo use). Originally they were loaned out to Wrimos in need from the general population, but now they are reserved for classrooms in need participating in the Young Writers Program.
