Radio Shack computer catalogue, 1983

A high-resolution scan of a 1983 Radio Shack computer catalogue has been posted on the Internet Archive. Big computers (with tiny memories), big hair and big, big prices. The most “affordable” personal computer in this catalogue seems to be about $1,000 while a “low-cost” printer would have set you back $400.
