Don’t cry for the TRS-80. It may be discontinued and the Tandy name may be little more than a fading memory linked back to the early days of Radio Shack, but the TRS-80 line of computers enjoyed quite a run back in the late ’70s and early ’80s. Priced at $399, the home version seen in the above commercial featured 4K of memory (unfathomably small by today’s standards) and hooked up to your color television. Yes! It did color!
Fate: The TRS-80 was discontinued in 1991. Radio Shack stopped using the “Tandy” name in 2000.
