Hello Alain,

Many thanks for this great find! I was considering buying old Radio Shack catalogs off eBay to get the part number, list prices and approximate release dates of the older chess computers. This web site will be a great resource.

Best regards,
Marko

Hello,
I am not sure that these beautiful catalogs give the true date of availability for computers chess (or others).
For example, TRS80 Model 1 only appears on the catalog of 1978, but it was launched in August 1977.
Thus, the actual date of availability may be a year before the device appears in the catalog.
However, the price is an accurate information.

Hi,

not enough details to be really interesting, but at least we can get release dates :


Radio Shack Catalogs

Best regards,
Alain

That's great news, Alain! Before they departed from the Netherlands I used to be an avid visitor of this store.

With grateful regards,

tom
