Our Tandy 200 portable computer does what no other computer could – it takes our amazing Model 100 one step further. The Tandy 200 represents a true second generation in portable com, with built-in software, improved features, a bigger screen a larger memory. All designed to make the Tandy 200 a more potent portable problem-solver.
For complex spreadsheet analysis and calculations, we put popular Multiplan software into the Tandy 200’s permanent memory. Just turn on your portable Tandy 200, press a button and you’ve got a powerful decision-support tool at your fingertips. Do sales forecasts, profit-and-loss projections, budgeting, pricing, engineering calculations and more.
An improved version of the Model 100’s easy-to-use word processing program makes Tandy 200 especially useful for journalists, salespeople, engineers, students and anyone who needs to write letter-perfect memos, reports and correspondence in a hurry. Edit, delete and move blocks of text with just the touch of a function key. The Tandy 200 gives you the convenience of a personal word processor for use anytime, anywhere.
Four other “instant-on” programs let you use the Tandy 200 as your telephone auto-dialer (the Tandy 200 generates tone-diaing pulses, so you can use it with long-distance services). A much more powerful built-in program for communications makes it easy to access other computers by phone. You can even create your own programs in BASIC, too
The Tandy 200’s high-contrast flip-up liquid crystal display has 240 x 128 resolution for big, clear graphics and easy-to-read characters. The 16-line by 40-character display makes the Tandy 200 particularly well-suited to word processing and spreadsheet duties, and with simple BASIC commands, you can add dot-addressable graphics to your text.
To take advantage of the Tandy 200’s powerful new capabilities, we increased the standard memory size to more than 24,000 characters. Additional optional 24K expansion modules let you increase the memory up to 72K.
Best of all, the Tandy 200 has parallel printer, RS232C, cassette and bar code reader interfaces for added versatility. You can even add disk storage and a monitor for a complete desktop system.
