Thread: What came in the box with the Tandy 1000 HX?

  1. #1

    Default What came in the box with the Tandy 1000 HX?

    I'm trying to know what documentation was provided along the computer.

    I can't find pictures of a complete set, or even a listing of stuff that came in the box. If you bought the computer new, what would you find?

    It had a quick reference, a manual, and I folder with a few floppies in it. The manuals were ring bound, and pretty small.

    It pretty much was a turn it on and look at it, since there was no serial port you were back to the store to get that if you wanted to communicate with the outside world. This was my first non Z80 machine and I remember it fondly, but six months later I traded it with a friend for a 286 clone that had a hard drive, and never looked back until 2017. Finally got one a few weeks back.

    I have the original box with mine, I think it says on the side what it came with.

    Believe it or not, I bought one of these new, and still have it. Was only used for one project, as a word processor, more or less. The limitations of the machine (without buying more expansion parts) was readily apparent, and I stuck it away in a closet.
    So, I dragged out, and here ya go...
    Included is:Personal Deskmate2 quick reference.
    Tandy 1000 HX/TX Quick Reference.
    Personal Deskmate2 Full Manual (BIG)
    Diskette Organizer.
    Organizer has 2 disks, MS-DOS/GW BASIC, and Personal Deskmate 2
    My DOS version is 2.11.26
    Also in pkg. was an Addendum Sheet for Deskmate 2

    There's a new auction on ebay, and the seller put a couple of useful pictures:
