Right! I almost forgot. On each box I listed the contents. Like:

Apple //e
Commodore 64
TI 99/4a


On a scarcely related note, has anyone ever seen (or does anyone have) a
TI-99/4 (no "a")? I was reading an old issue of Creative Computing and
they mentioned the 99/4 in an article about the 4a. They also mentioned
a system called the 99/8 (I think it was that) that was built but never
released because TI decided to get out of the home computer market. It
was a great article about the price wars between TI and Commodore. It
talked about how the TI 99/4a started at $1395 and eventually wound its
way down to $49 over the course of 2 years in competition with the
VIC-20. I'm amazed the 99/4a still has such a following. It was like
the Hyundai of the 80s home computer market.
