Hey, I just went to this website and saw this computer:

Ive never seen one before. Now I want one :D
It looks sort of like my TRS-80. I wonder how good it is in comparison.

I have a hard time believing so. It would have to be a terminal at most.

Nope, that's a VERY old 50's B&W T.V. I forget who made them, I think it was Magnavox, but I'm not sure. It could be used as a B&W terminal though with a little rewiring and a few new tubes. 8)
