TRS-80 Pocket Computer PC-1

The TRS-80 PC-1 is the first BASIC-programmable pocket-sized computer; it is actually the Sharp PC-1211, sold by Radio Shack in the US.

The pocket computer has 1.9K of RAM and 11K of ROM, and a cassette interface for extra memory. It featured a 24-character LCD display and was powered by four LR44 batteries. Advanced functions include Trig, logs, probability, statistics, and BASIC functions.

When the TRS-80 PC-1 was announced in 1980 it was set to retail at £119 for the computer and £17.95 for the cassette interface, while the Sharp PC-1211 was being advertised at £85 for the pocket computer and £11.50 for the cassette interface.

Our unit is in excellent condition with the serial number 0900042X in a soft case with the original packaging. Complete with cassette interface and 16 column dot-matrix impact printer.
