picked this up in a lot buy out. the trs 80 original was put out in 1979 but was plagued by interference.any ways a .
older couple bought it. put ot in the attic after they looked at there first trs doss or new doss settings and 1 of 8 manuals 3 inches thick . its brand new. never removed from box . still had the foam ontop. and it was still glued in , all the software is excellent cond.its a true antique the trs 3 was was the upgrade from the original that was causing lots interference. so fcc set strict regulations .and the personal computer was born .a slew of other series of personal computers allso took off at this time. like apple mac. this particular puter has 64 mb of ram and 2 color options guess lol. 1983 was the year for all the biggies but the computer age started in the mid to late 70s. wish i could go back to those years . this is the trs 3 . so nice paper weight huh ?

    Yep ... I was just starting in IT when it was released. Problems earned it the nickname of "trash-80".
