Tandy Radio Shack
TRS 80 PC-2

After the success of the TRS-80 Pocket Computer (a.k.a. TRS-80 PC-1), Sharp also manufactured their PC-1500 (see there for more technical information) in a version for Tandy Radio Shack.

This machine was marketed as the TRS-80 PC-2 (catalog number 26-3601). Internally, it was exactly the same machine. Only the front face design had been changed: the keyboard layout was different, with an additional enter key, and the display had been shifted to the right. Moreover, the colour style was also slightly different, with a light gray instead of brown back of the case.

Some peripherals supplied by Tandy were the "docking station" with 4 colour pen plotter and cassette interface (catalog number 26-3605), 4 and 8 KB RAM module (26-3615 and 26-3616), an external tape interface (26-3605) and an RS-232 interface (26-3612). Of course, all peripherals developed for the Sharp PC-1500 could also be used.

Thanks to Roman von Wartburg and his site for information and picture.

It was with my PC2 that I wrote my first AI project..a program that would write space adventure stories. They were quite good.

Just found our TRS-80 PC2...popped some batteries into it and it works! Haven''t found the instructions as yet or if there is a printer/cassette cartridge anywhere. I''ll keep looking. Can''t believe it still works...looks like new and it has the soft carry case it came in that''s like new as well.

I got mine in 1983 or 1984, if I remember correctly Radio Shack was closing them out and we had to visit three stores, where I bought the last one. I also got the printer/cassette interface.
In digging through old boxes today, I found my device along with the documentation for it. Still had batteries in it, unfortunately. Looking at doing a restoration and just looking around to see what''s out there about this machine, that I used to love back then.
