Flash from the past - TRS-80 Model III

ok, who remembers using this bad boy?

Tandy released the TRS-80 Model III on July 26, 1980. T

he improvements of the Model III over the Model I include:

  • built-in lowercase,

  • a better keyboard with repeating keys,

  • an enhanced character set,

  • a real-time clock,

  • 1500-baud cassette interface,

  • a faster (2.03 MHz) Z80 processor,

  • and an all-in-one enclosure requiring fewer cables.

A Model III with two floppy drives requires the use of only one electrical outlet, whereas a two-drive Model I requires five outlets.
