TRS-80, Commodore PET spotted in wild

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, not for sale.

 

But the shop they're at has a mini museum type of thing that also includes an older Apple MacIntosh and IBM computer as well.

 

Pic quality isn't the best but the computers themselves are solid.

...Reminds me of the scene in "Back to the Future II" when Marty walks past an antiques store and they have a Macintosh in the window...

I've actually been to a museum, IIRC the county museum in Salina KS, that had a mac on display as a historical piece. I don't even think it was an original, it was a Mac Classic.

Cool! I don't recall having ever see an original PET or Lisa, even on display in a museum.

 

The TRS-80 Model III brings back memories; I last used one in about Grade 7 (1983/84). The school system had only a single disk drive, and we also used cassettes to save BASIC programs as the media was much cheaper. One of my friends (who later went on to complete a B.SC. in Computer Science) wrote a handful of games for it; mostly text based. We fantasized about developing a Space Invaders clone, but we lacked the skill (and the stock graphics hardware was too limited).
