Bill Detwiler's Tandy 1000

This Tandy 1000 was my first real computer. It came with an Intel 8088 processor, 640K RAM, two 5.25" floppies, and a color monitor. I later upgraded to a 20 MB hard drive. I spent countless hours writing high school papers, crafting BASIC programs, and playing Gunship and MechWarrior on this machine. It still runs perfectly. — Bill Detwiler
