Christmas Computer Shopping in 1984

“Computer Experts” say that you can learn the basics of computers in a couple of hours, back in 1984.  Oddly enough, I believe that still holds up today if (BIG ‘IF’) a person has never touched a computer.

If you pay attention to the video, you’ll see an Epson PX-8,  Tandy TRS-80 Model 100, Color Computer 2,  Apple Lisa, Macintosh, IIc, and an IBM 5150.  Makes a “computer expert” like me dream of getting one of these under my Christmas tree.
