I recall being intrigued at the time and I recall reading a review that wasn't all that flattering, especially with regard to its membrane keypad. I think it was in early '83 or late '82 that Radio Shack had their branded version of the Timex Sinclair 1000 in the catalog. It was tempting but I wisely waited until the Color Computer 2 went on sale in November and picked one up, with 16k of Extended Color BASIC, for about $150 as I recall. At least it was something I could add to over time and eventually used for word processing and packet radio. I wonder who that 800 number goes to now. I'm not brave enough to try it.
