    Default My First Osborne 1

    Picked this up today:

    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F264037028278

    Quite low serial. Does appear to have some issues but I'm hopeful it's just bad RAM or something.

    Any pro tips on what to do/not do with these?

    Well, if you're interested in actually using the thing, you might want to upgrade the drives and FDC to do double-sided/double density. As originally marketed, single-sided 35-track FM encoded floppies got you somewhere around 80KB per disk.
