Tandy Radio Shack
1000 EX

Untitled Document

C. Hunnefield reports:

Sometime around 1987 Tandy released a version of this computer except with a built-in 3.5" floppy. While the 3.5" drive was clearly a better solution, the software channel had not yet moved from the 5.25" standard.

At the time, I worked for Electronics Boutique, and the Radio Shack down at the other end of the mall had sold some folks one of these unfortunate machines. Excited, they came in looking for compatible software but were disappointed and angry when they learned that we had all of 3 or 4 titles available in 3.5" format.

The took the computer back to Radio Shack, and the manager of that store tried to chew me out about it. I invited him to look around the store and find me more than the 3 or 4 titles.

Frustrated, he huffed his way out the door.

(Webmaster's note: this anecdot must indeed concern the Tandy 1000 HX released in 1987)
