"I remember this system when shopping for my first computer. It has good specs, but TI made it prohibitively expensive. In its normal configuration, you could only program it in BASIC (saving to cassette tape) or run ROM cartridge video games. In order to program it for real, you needed to buy the (very expensive) expansion chassis, a floppy drive, a P-code interpreter card, and a PASCAL compiler software package.For the amount of money involved, it was far cheaper and easier to buy a system from Apple, Commodore, Atari or Tandy. I ended up getting a TRS-80 Color Computer, which I used for many years, mostly running software I developed myself."
