Don’t Mess with Texas (Instruments)

I hit two of my favourite thrift stores on my lunch break today.  While I struck out at the first, the second yielded the following treasure!


Yes, I am the proud owner of a Texas Instruments TI-99/4A computer, complete with all the trimmings, including a Parsec game cart, joystick, and speech synthesis module!


I have no idea if it works, and no idea what I’m going to do with it, but I’m sure I’ll have some fun with it.

I’m still keeping my eyes open for an Atari 800-series computer…
