Mine was a tandy - maybe an HX1000 - it looks like this:

http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p...andy1000HX.jpg

keyboard was built into the case - very small monitor.


2 floppy drives - one of which didnt' work.


Its life ended when I was exploring and switched the boot up from disket A to disket B - which didn't work.

And as at the time I knew next to nothing about computers I never got it fixed... Not sure where it is now. Probably tossed it

And no - I'm not that old... Got it from my Aunt when they moved...

I was thrilled to get it

My first PC was old school. Can't remember, but it had no 3D graphics card (just one of those 2D pieces of ****), and it could run Windows 3.1... lol.
