A TRS80 was an old Tandy/Radio Shack computer.. super primitive,
there was a big add on memory unit I think was 256mb!
And there was a matching dot matrix printer!
I didn't Google.. I had one!
I used those at a job back in the early 80s. Had 16K of RAM - multiple downloads from a floppy just to read a one-page letter. Wrote a loan servicing program in Basic...
My first programming class used this:
I used to get the Tandy Corp professional catalogues
Looked like a phone book. It was that huge!
My brother was a real time computer tech. After his children were born he wanted them to grow up with computers. Bought a Tandy 8088 with DUAL FLOPPIES! No hard drives in PC's yet. Of course half the programs couldn't recognize that multiple floppy drives were available. That Tandy was faster than any PC that Big Blue offered at the time.
I wasn't into computers until an unplanned midlife career change. My first computer was a screaming 486-25. Upgrade to 160mg hard drive, four meg of ram. That was a CAD monster, only cost me $6600!
