Re: portable computer


That looks kinda like a photo trace of an old Kay-Pro computer my Dad would make me use in high school when the "real" computer wasn't working.

That is a TRS-80 Model III or 4. I know my TRS-80s -- worked for Tandy Corp back in those days. Heh. Wrote the book on the Model 4. Seriously! I was a technical writer.

Re: portable computer


I am not sure what kind it was, it was my dad's and we had one. i didn't use an auto photo trace or anything, i made it by hand with love! ;)

Re: portable computer


The old Kaypro you're thinking of didn't look like that TRS-80 (which is not a portable computer). Also, the operating system was loaded from disk on all the IBM compatibles.

Text on the side is pretty small too. I can't make out the second and third items.

it says:

operating system : y
kilobyte capacity : y
financing available : y

in the monitor it says

brains :> run

hope i was not inaccurate with the portable remark or the operating system remark. if the operating system was loaded from disk, perhaps, i meant that disk is included. i can't really remember all the awesome details, just that it started my crazy digital life. and perhaps you would believe what's in these things... i do and don't at the same time! its crazy
