I bought a HP41CV in 1983 with about 2K of RAM for about half the price of that TRS-80 4K Model 1. Was that good value? It certainly seemed like it to me as I could carry the 41 with me, plug it into a digital cassette drive that I bought second hand, have all my programs in continuous memory, etc.

Thanks for the article. I vividly recall buying the TRS-80 "User’s Manual for Level I" book in 1977 (http://www.trs-80.org/level-1-basic/). It was my first introduction to computers and BASIC. I also bought my first HP that year, a HP-25 so it was a big year for meSmile
