What a bunch of late adopters! I was window shopping the Tandy TRS-80 in 1977. By the time I could afford one in 1978, Dick Smith started importing the Exidy Sorcerer into Australia - much more sophisticated, but is cost me $1,200! I sold the Sorcerer in 1982 and bought my first "proper" computer - an Osbourne One, the first ever portable business computer. It weighed in at more than 10kg, and was the shape and size of a portable sewing machine. 64k RAM, running CP/M on a Zilog Z80. Two floppy disks, one for the program and one for the data. Those were the days.... ;)

Yeah, I remember both those machines. The keyboard of the Osborne was in the lid, if I recall, with a tiny CRT in the box.

Dick Smith also imported a TRS-80 clone with a built-in cassette recorder.

@themadhippy Great videos, thanks for posting. Takes me right back to the 6502 machine I had all those years ago. I still remembered some of the op codes.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.
