Nos trs-80?

Yep, that's right. I'm into computers even more (maybe) than I am cars, an I managed to find a new-in-the-box, never-been-used TRS-80 Model 1, Level 1, the first computer I ever saw, and the one that hooked me.

So I bought it!

My question is "does it count as NOS" or does NOS mean it never got sold retail originally?

I think we take NOS to mean "an original factory part, new and unused, still in the factory packaging", and it certainly meets that description!

Re: Nos trs-80?

I was taught computers back in the early '80's on those trash 80's. Even got a free one from my uncle with huge piles of software and floppy disks in 1988. Never really learned how to use a computer until the late 90's. Cool that you found a brand new one still in the box, but have no idea on how someone would be able to use one today.
