May 4, 2011 – TRS-80 Model III and 4 for FREE (Local Pickup Only)

May 4, 2011 – TRS-80 Model III and 4 for FREE (Local Pickup Only)



A site visitor has a Model III and a Model 4 available (+ dust covers) for free for local pickup only in Natick, Massachusetts. When last used in July of 2009, the Model III worked perfectly, and the Model 4 worked other than drive :1 (although the individual did not attempt to determine why).

To avoid the standard problem of people emailing the individual to ask if they will ship, you are asked to contact me. I will pass on offers to pick up the computers. First come first served.
