PC Magazine realized that there would likely be a market for the PCjr and decided to offer a magazine to inform and educate that market. PCjr was that magazine and it was printed before the Jr. ever hit store shelves. With the less than rousing success of the PCjr itself, it was a short-lived publication.

I used to have this computer when I was a kid in Philedalphia 1988, it cost me about $500, I got it used from some other guy who didn't want it. I remember the wirelesss keyboard, and the big memory blocks that you had to screw to the size of the computer to add more RAM and the big floppy, no hard-drive. These days a computer like that is just a paper weight or a collectors item, but back then it was kida fun.
