    Well, the chips were manufactured for IBM's PC and PC Jr products originaly (with Tandy the first real clone). But they were always Intel brand names (even if IBM practically drew them up).

    I think my old TRS-80 Color Computer used a 2Mhz 80C86 or something like that
    No, the coco computer was equipped with a Motorola 6809 processor.

    If you try to get DOS running on it, remember to use an old 720/800 Kb floppy. They're the ones with only one square indexing hole.

    Not a pentium, this was before pentiums existed. Windows 3.1 would be a snail on that thing, Windows 95 is out of the question. DOS is prolly the answer.

    By the way, what does BTW stand for?

    It is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.

    Yup you are right:


    I have worked on several of Radio Shacks old one. My oldest brother had the TRS-80 Model 1, my school had the Model 3 and 4, and onther bother had the CoCo model 1. I eventually picked up the CoCo model 3 when Radio Shack started dumping them for $50. Those were the days man... casset tape drive just rocks!
