Tandy TRS-80 Model 100

Radio Shack already had a successful line of computers under the TRS-80 brand when they released the world’s first laptop, the Tandy TRS-80 Model 100. Also known as a “notebook-style computer”, the Model 100 sold for $1,099-$1,399 when it was released in 1983. It had a built-in keyboard and liquid crystal display (LCD), and ran on 4 AA batteries for power. It was originally sold in Japan by Kyocera, and called the Kyotronic 85. Because of slow sales, they sold the rights to Tandy Corporation and it was sold through Radio Shack stores in North America. The Model 100 quickly became one of Radio Shack's best-selling products, selling over 6 million units until its discontinuation.

TRS-80 Pocket Computer

The Radio Shack TRS-80 Pocket Computer, rebranded as the PC-1 after the release of the PC-2, was released in July 1980. It was the first BASIC based computer that could fit in your pocket! It was actually the same as the Sharp PC-1211, but sold by Radio Shack in the United States. It cost $230 at release in 1980. It was rebranded as the PC-1 in 1982 when Radio Shack released the PC-2.

Also seen here is the Radio Shack TRS-80 Printer/Cassette Interface. It was released in 1982 for a price of $149.00. It was a dot-matrix printer and could print 16 characters on a line.
