Garage Sale Finds: $5 1981 TI-99/4A Home Computer Quick History Inside Look

VIDEO

DESCRIPTION

Today we are going to take a look at this TI-99/4A home computer that I picked up at a garage sale for $5. The TI-99/4A was released in 1981 as a cheaper and what Texas Instruments hoped to be a more competitive version of the original TI-99/4. However, heated competition with commodores Vic-20 and massive financial losses for TI lead to the death of the TI-99/4A in 1983.
