My dad bought us a Tandy (radio shack) TRS-80!

Man it rocked! I had loads of fun on it.

Incredible when you think it had 16k of ram and wasnt even colour!
It cost him about 400. (A LOT of money back then!) And because we couldnt afford a green-screen monitor, my dad just stuck some green plastic over our b/w portable TV!

Later on, they became known as Trash-80.  At the time, they were great, but looking back, how did we ever survive on those black screens with the green text?  ;D

I actually used one of these for awhile as well. .  The games weren't too impressive and at the time, that was all I was interested in.  I think there was another computer by another brand that was very similar. .  Oh yea, Texas Instruments. .  I had one of those as well - and it was VERY similar, as far as I can remember, to the TRS-80. . .

Somebody should post pictures of these old computers.  :p
