Tandy TRS-80 Model 100 Teardown

Cracking Open the Tandy TRS-80 Model 100

Released in 1983, the Tandy TRS-80 Model 100 was one of the first truly portable computers. Before its release, mobile computers, such as the Osborne 1 are more "luggable" than portable.

We first cracked open the Tandy Model 100 back in 2008. And while our original gallery was good, I believed it could be better.
