Indeed. Mine was the first of its kind to be sold in the NYC Metro area. My picture appeared in the local Radio Shack for some time. My daughter, now a mother of twins, also learned BASIC on the TRS-80 when she was 7. And yes, the original system only had cassette storage, although I later upgraded it to include a floppy drive that held a whopping 16K. Stay curious, David David E.
