It's amazing to see stuff

It's amazing to see stuff still coming out for the TS-1000. It was my first computer.
It was probably the only computer to ever be released, and immediately be underpowered. 2K wasn't enough to do anything.

While many other computers could have been considered underpowered when released, don't forget the Mattel Aquarius, which was actually obsolete upon release. It is safe to say, that even though it was the first sub-$100 computer, the Timex Sinclair 1000 definitely falls into that category, though perhaps errs more on the "unusable" side than the Aquarius...
