 System 80 Microcomputer Archive Site
Although in terms of software, the System 80 was a (near-) TRS-80 Model 1 clone, it's appearance, interfaces and idiosyncrasies were unique enough to justify it's own place in the sun in terms of microcomputer history.
This site is dedicated to the System 80, a TRS-80 Model 1 clone, popular in Australia and New Zealand in the early 1980's.
Rather, these pages focus on the System 80 (aka Video Genie/PCM-80/81) and its culture in Australia and New Zealand, largely from my own memory, the assistance of other contributors, System-80 literature and the pages of Micro-80.

 panopticist: My Sixth-Grade TRS-80 Speech, 1980
The TRS-80 was an attempt by Tandy, Radio Shack's parent company, to enter the burgeoning home-computer market.
It was a rickety, cheaply made little thing that totally earned its derisive nickname, "Trash 80." But I was fascinated by what it could do.
Those were the days of Asteroids and Space Invaders; my friends and I were part of the first generation of children to grow up obsessed with videogames.

TRS-80 Color Computer II The home computer is a consumer-friendly word for the second generation of microcomputers (the technical term that was previously used), entering the market in 1977 and becoming common during the 1980s.
Home computers were mostly based on 8-bit microprocessor technology, typically the MOS Technology 6502 or the Zilog Z80.
A plethora of home computers came out during this period, but most failed to have a significant impact on the market or the history of home computing and as such are not mentioned (this includes machines not sold/known outside its home market).
