A $99.95 computer for Christmas!

When I was a kid, the store I wanted to go to most for electronic goodies was Radio Shack. These days, I regard that place as the “the odd wire adapter store”. The place that has the hard to find accessories, but back in the 1980’s, they had radio control cars, robots, and even computers. You can get a “Color Computer 2” for under a hundred bucks (on sale)!
