1983 Radio Shack TRS-80 Color Computer 2 with HJL-57 keyboard

A look at Radio Shack’s TRS-80 (Tandy) Color Computer 2, introduced in 1983 as a restyled and slightly upgraded version of the original “CoCo” from 1980. Its nine-color (eight colors plus black) graphics and sound weren’t as good as other home computers of the time like the C64 and Atari 800XL, but it features an excellent version of Microsoft BASIC and with a disk drive, it can run a real-time multitasking operating system known as OS-9. This particular example was retrofitted by its original owner with an aftermarket HJL-57 keyboard, which provided an improved typing feel and additional function keys versus the original “melted” keyboard it came with.
