We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.

This micro-sized TRS-80 was designed to be a low-cost alternative to it's larger brother. It's limited feature set meant it was not a commercial success and it was discontinued a year after it's introduction. The French Alice machine was a clone of the MC-10.

Specifications:

 

  • Motorola MC6803 8-bit microprocessor.
  • 4KB RAM
  • Built-in serial port.
  • Graphics capability similar to the original color computer.

 

Manufacturer: Radio Shack
Date: 1983
