Quick — name the most important personal computer of the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Those of you who mentioned the legendary Apple II–that’s fine. I respect your decision. Forced to think objectively in 2012, I may even agree. But if you just named Radio Shack’s TRS-80, you made me smile.
Your choice is entirely defensible. And back in the TRS-80’s heyday, I not only would have agreed with it but would have vehemently opposed any other candidate.
Gadget-retailing giant Radio Shack unveiled the TRS-80 Model I at a press conference at New York’s Warwick Hotel 35 years ago today, on August 3, 1977. (The company didn’t call it the Model I at the time: Like Apple’s Apple I, it only became the I after a II was introduced.)
