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."

I have one

I bought a TRS-80 (sort of) at a garage sale for $5. It's the Pocket PC one that looked like a large calculator. I have it to this day complete with the plotter/printer casette interface. It works, too, but the ink has dried out. Not likely to find replacements for that.

I may have to fire it up for old time sake.
