Today in History: Radio Shack unveiled TRS-80 PC
On August 3, 1977 — 37 years ago today — Radio Shack announced its first personal computer. Later models made this TRS-80 Model I, which came equipped with 4KB of RAM, cassette-tape storage, and a built-in BASIC interpreter. Along with Commodore’s PET and Apple’s Apple II, the TRS-80 was one of the first mass-produced personal computers. In this early period for microcomputers, most units came in kit form and appealed more to hobbyists. These fully complete personal computers were the first to address the average person and became quite popular in schools.

The “TRS-80 Micro Computer System,” as it was called on the day it was announced, was not delivered until November to individuals and organizations that had ordered the product unseen. The product quickly became the #1 personal computer, largely because it was marketed through more than 3,000 Radio Shack storefronts. By 1979, the TRS-80 had more software titles available for it than any other PC product. [Apple and Steve Jobs must have remembered this situation when they decided to open retail stores after Jobs returned in Apple. For comparison, today Apple has 425 retail stores and they have become the most successful in business history.] By 1980, Kilobaud Microcomputing magazine estimated that Radio Shack was selling 3 times as many personal computers as Apple.
