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."

In 1981, a friend of mine had a TRS-80 model 1, and I thought it was just the neatest thing. I went down to Radio Shack. They didn't have any model 1's left, but they did have the original TRS-80 Color Computer. 4K RAM, 8K ROM, Color BASIC, cassette recorder for storage, a TV for a monitor. I was in heaven!
