TANDY ANNOUNCES ITS ANSWER TO IBM’S PS/1

By CBR Staff Writer

Tandy Corp duly announced its Tandy 1000 RL answer to IBM’s PS/1 home computer, highlighting the mass of software bundled with it and the low, low price, but carefully omitting any mention of the processor: that’s because it uses a 512Kb 8086 clocked at 9.54MHz where the PS/1 uses a 10MHz 80286: to go out via Tandy’s 7,000 Radio Shack stores in the US, the RL has 24 built-in programs developed especially to make everyday home tasks easier; it is $750 with mono monitor and floppy, $900 colour, $1,200 with hard disk, mono, $1,300, colour, $1,300.
