It was with my PC2 that I wrote my first AI project..a program that would write space adventure stories. They were quite good.

Just found our TRS-80 PC2...popped some batteries into it and it works! Haven''t found the instructions as yet or if there is a printer/cassette cartridge anywhere. I''ll keep looking. Can''t believe it still works...looks like new and it has the soft carry case it came in that''s like new as well.

I got mine in 1983 or 1984, if I remember correctly Radio Shack was closing them out and we had to visit three stores, where I bought the last one. I also got the printer/cassette interface.
In digging through old boxes today, I found my device along with the documentation for it. Still had batteries in it, unfortunately. Looking at doing a restoration and just looking around to see what''s out there about this machine, that I used to love back then.

This PC was actually built by Sharp Electronics for Tandy Corp. The Sharp version called a PC-1500 had a normal looking keyboard with the letters arranged in a normal Qwerty setup. The Tandy version had more keys by having an extra enter key with the numeric pad. Very little to criticise either way. They functioned the same and were very powerful for there day. A very good optional extra was the printer/dual cassette port interface. If you were handy at tinkering you could expand the memory to 64K.
I had 16k on mine and used it for processing engine dynamometer data.

I just unearthed a Tandy PC-2 that belonged to my brother, and just for kicks I googled it to see what would pop up. What I don''t understand is of all the photos I saw that were purported to be of a PC-2, none of them look like mine nor are they identified as being a PC-2 on the face of the unit, including the ones shown on this page. What''s up with that?

I have a PC-2 and it still works 30 years later. Only the pens in the printer/cassette interface are dried out and don''t work, but I have refilled them before using a water-based ink. I also have the 4K memory module for a total of 6K. The computer uses Basic and I can pack a lot of programming into that amount of memory.
