You Know What They Say About Guys with Big Computers

May 19, 1981. (Bruce McKim/Seattle Times)

The TRS-80 cost a pretty penny back in 1981. This one looks like a Model III. I suspect we’re witnessing a family money laundering operation.

    LoL. A whopping 64K of computing power on that Model II.

    I think they always used a screenshot of bar graphs on computer ads. I even convinced my dad to get me my Atari 800XL on account of it could “help me with my math.” Sure!

    Good heavens, look at that price! Almost $4K for that computer! Dang!!
