Product Overview

While they were involved in many other successful projects, TI's entry into the early home computer market was unfortunately not one of them. In June 1979, TI entered the game with the TI-99/4, a competitor to such entries as the TRS-80 and the later Commodore VIC-20 and Commodore 64. It discontinued the TI-99/4A (1981), the sequel to the 99/4, in late 1983 amidst an intense price war versus Commodore, Atari, and others. While featuring excellent build quality and such nifty extras as an expansion chassis for add-on cards and peripherals, TI missed the boat on marketing their system and it became a footnote on the road to the modern PC. The company is probably best known for their extensive line of pocket calculators, which included: Z80 Processor: TI-73x | TI-81 | TI-82 | TI-83x | TI-84x | TI-85 | TI-86 m68k Processor: TI-89x | TI-92x and Voyage 200 | TI-Nspire™ CAS
