Hardware, Embedded Systems "Quick - name the most important personal computer of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Those of you who mentioned the legendary Apple II - that's fine. I respect your decision. Forced to think objectively in 2012, I may even agree. But if you just named Radio Shack's TRS-80, you made me smile. Your choice is entirely defensible. And back in the TRS-80's heyday, I not only would have agreed with it but would have vehemently opposed any other candidate."

Still have a Model 100 laptop

I still have a TRS-80 model 100 laptop in it's large plastic case with the cup modem. I think it was 3 AA batteries it took, maybe 4, but they lasted a month easy.

We got rid of the model IIIs, the CoCo, the Vic20, Commodore, etc, when we moved, but no way I am getting rid of the laptop. Got to hold on to some of your roots!
