TRS-80 Model III ... I picked up a ton of shareware games and other utilities at a local user group on 5.25" floppies. I probably still have them in a shoe box somewhere if my wife hasn't discovered them yet and thrown them out.
Commodore 64 ... I discovered BASIC and color!
Timex Sinclair 1000 ... Worst keyboard ever! I got the one with 2K of RAM and remember loading a flight simulator from audio tape. The refresh rate was about one frame per second.
TRS-80 Model 4 ... More user groups, more games, more utilities.
TRS-80 Model 100 ... Now this is the machine I wish I still had. I maxed out the RAM/ROM to 32K and got the 3.5" floppy drive. I also got a 300 baud modem and would read SarText as fast as the the text would download.
