Microcomputer Tear-Down: Tandy 100

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

My illustrations comparable to tear-downs are not about hardware.  They are mainly about the installation of software and the discovery of idiosyncrasies and pit-falls that I have fallen into and that others can avoid.

The Bill Detwiler Tandy 100 Tear-Down lovingly presented on Tech Republic (registration possibly required) struck me as a demonstration of great product photography.  Not enough that I want to give a piece of hardware that much love, but enough that I would like similar efforts of mine to come reasonably close.

What’s marvelous for me is the cleanliness of the Tandy 100 at a time when everything was an experiment.  This product became a standard journalist carry-all that can claim its descendants in digital tablets, laptop computers, feature phones (including my personal series of Nokia Communicator phones) and smart phones.
