TI-99 Photos Thread! Post your systems here!

Recommended Posts

I finally got one of my “grail” items... a genuine ti color monitor! I’ve been looking for one of those for years. The screen is a fair bit smaller than the CRT tv I was using, but boy is the picture nice.

Just got back into the TI over the last 2 months with some help from my brother. Had not used one since the late 80s. Here is my setup at the moment. I have a PEB that needs some work coming soon. Not sure where to put it once it is working.

Over the years, here at AtariAge sidecars have evolved, gotten more capable, and seem to have come full-circle in appearance...
