The TRS-80 Model I came in several different versions. You could get the machine either with or without a numeric keypad and as a Level I (base) or Level II (upgraded BASIC and RAM) machine. The Level I model had a 4K BASIC with very limited capabilities. The Level II version had a 12K BASIC which was far more useful.
This machine is a Model I, Level II with the numeric keypad, expansion interface, drives and (flakey) monitor.
Thank you to Bob Wickman who donated this machine.
Another TRS-80 was added to the collection. This one came boxed in (mostly) original packages with two aftermarket drives, a Hayes 300 baud modem and more.
