And another source here by the amazing Stan Freberg:
Both of us have spoken to audiences at IBM many times, and once they gave Ray, who writes on an IBM Wheelwriter electric typewriter, an IBM computer.
After trying to write on it for a week, he finally gave it to one of his daughters, and went back to his old faithful electric typewriter.
I happen to write on a Macintosh, and have tried to talk him into a computer. Nothing doing. In spite of writing on the future, Ray doesn't compute.
Not knowing this, Microsoft's Bill Gates recently asked Ray if he could help him with his computer needs.
"Bill," said Ray, "I don't do 'Windows'."

Sounds like he may have used Selectrics as well.

Named in honor of Ray Bradbury, the cast bronze statuette references Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles, while the IBM Selectric type ball used for the figure's head is indicative of Bradbury's stated preference for using an IBM Selectric typewriter.
Certainly not the ONLY one to prefer that IBM tactile SNAP!
Looks like he also used a Royal.
