There is a computer marketed for The Amish! Check out what’s different about it.

It may come as a surprise to you to find out that there is an Amish trade show, a trade show that sells power tools.

Typically, they keep all electrical objects outside of their home – in an area of their property so they barely even know that it's over there.

Another rare item at the trade show was an '80's era piece of technology – a computer for the Amish. The booth displayed the item proudly boasted all the things that the computer couldn't do: No Internet, No Video, No Music. The computer let's the user perform basic word-processing, spreadsheets, and accounting functions!
