Vintage 1981 Radio Shack Tandy TRS-80 Model 3 Home Computer COOL
Vintage 1980s Radio Shack TRS-80 Home Computer. This unit had obviously been sitting for a real long time when I found it. I did some light cleaning and fired it up. There was some program disk in the bottom drive that appears to be a business inventory program of some type and, to my surprise it loaded right up. In full disclosure, the first time I turned it on there was a puff of smoke that came out of the top vents for a few seconds (and a slight odor from that event lingers a bit in the unit) - but it was short lived and the unit appears to be working. I since booted it numerous times and it loads that inventory program right up every time. Since the smoke puff event, I left it on for about two hours straight in my kitchen and there have. Some of the keys did not function at first due to extended non-use - but I wiggled them a bit and they are all working now. The external case does have some wear and scuffing that is noticeable on all sides - but overall it's in good shape. It appears that the bottom disk drive is the default and though the light comes on the top drive, I'm not sure how to test it so the top drive comes untested. That's all I really know about the unit so it comes as-described, as-pictured here. Questions encouraged and responded to quickly!
