Notes: For a description on this pocket computer's capabilities please see my page on the TRS‑80 PC‑2. That might seem illogical since that one is actually a clone of this one but the PC-2 is the pocket computer I used Quite A Lot.


There is a wide range of peripherals for this machine, including a four-colour pen plotter and cassette interface, a video module, a communications module with RS232, a floppy drive module and of course memory modules and software modules. Many of these are still available here and there on mainly German Internet sites.

A power adapter.
