The Pet and the Apple II were advertisted from the beginning of
1977 on as home systems. Few units went there for quite a while,
so the TRS-80 (later called Model One) was the first in quantity.

Then again, I had a Digicomp I, the first "toy" computer. It was
definitely not aimed at the business market back in the mid 19660's.
