The TI-99/4A is famous (infamous?) for it's expandability. We've all seen the pictures of the poor TI with a half-dozen devices out to the side. This is both hilarious and awesome at the same time.
So my question is, are any of you running a massively wide setup like this? Or, did you in the past?
I run the sidecars myself. The 32k+Disk controller+disk drive combine to form a much smaller footprint and much lighter setup. The RS-232 can be added if necessary which is almost never for me. I prefer sidecars to my PEB.
The disk drive can sit atop the disk controller btw.
This image you included has the thermal printer and modem which few of us have.
So the sidecars aren’t as hilarious as one would think. They’re portable too.
