The Tandy 102 Portable Computer is a A4 size computer like the later Cambridge Z88, but with a few differences...

The first thing you notice is the very good keyboard... the next thing is the thickness... It's at least 50% thicker than the Z88. Also, the case is 'creaky'(at least mine is).

What else can be said?
The user interface is not exactly intuitive... I still haven't figured out how to set the Time/Date...

  • Comments will not be visible until I manually OK them.
  • You don't need to give an email address if you don't want to. But if you do, you decide whether or not it is visible. (No addresses will be given to third-parties, it's only there to make it easier for me to get back to you)
  • This script WILL log your IP adress.
  • Profanities, 'L337' speak, links to unrelated stuff like Pr0n and online gambling will result in your IP being banned, a message being sent to your ISP and anything else nasty I can think of...
  • Suspicious HTML in the comments field will also cause me to give you hell.
  • While I don't have any user registration here, that's no reason to use a 'nick' belonging to someone else.
