There was also a beige all plastic model that came later. Cheaper to make.
These seem a bit more rare then the silver/black ones....here anyways...

A fast 16 bit CPU but a weird way of accessing memory made the thing really
slow IIRC

I think it was a costly & painfull venture for TI...

I am still looking for the expansion box / floppies for these...these are
rarer because so expensive back then...

The computers alone are very common...

I have accumulated too many and some will go in garbage at next
inventory/cleaning...Ill keep the "inbox" ones...

My 2 cents...
