The Tandy 1000 HX, released in 1987, was designed as another entry level IBM compatible personal computer

The Tandy 1000 was followed by a series of models which appended two or three letters to the name, after a space, (e.g. Tandy 1000 EX, Tandy 1000 SX, Tandy 1000 TX, Tandy 1000 RL, Tandy 1000 RLX). In a few instances, a slash and a number or additional letters were appended to these letters (e.g. Tandy 1000 TL/2, Tandy 1000 RL/HD

The Tandy 1000 HX was the bigger brother of the EX. It was mostly the same machine, but had a 3.5" floppy instead of a 5.25" one, and also had DOS 2.11 in ROM, which could be accessed by starting the computer with no bootable disk present. Like the EX, the clock speed of its 8088 CPU was increased to 7.16 MHz, providing a large performance benefit; although it could clock down to 4.77 MHz for compatibility with older applications)
