    Isn't that is "the" Tandy 1000? Not the 1000A, but the original first one. And a fairly low serial number, too.

    The Tandy 1000 had a number of 25-1000. The 1000HD had a number of 25-1001. The 1000A had a number of 25-1000A. Most of the other 25-100x numbers were for add-ons like the memory card. 25-1002 is not listed in any catalog I have found. Probably needs to be opened and checked just to make sure it isn't just a special code for a Tandy 1000 with a second floppy drive installed.

    It's up for sale right now on eBay:

    I wanted to know more about it before making a bid, but I think at this point I am going to pass.

    This might be a wild guess, but I wonder if this was a custom RS store-only system used for ordering/inventory etc.. The outside expansion slot looks to be a modem.
    It's possible that someone decided to get rid of excess non-A machines by using them for internal business operations. That would account for the low serial number and lack of published part number.
    Back in the day before we had a multi-user POS system, we used Model 4s for order entry. But that was Canada, and not that many stores (compare to the US).

    The seller is in a suburb of Fort Worth, Texas, so it could've been used at Tandy headquarters.

    I decided to bid on the this Tandy 1000 after all and won the auction for $102.50 plus shipping. Once I get the computer, I will report back on what I find after opening it up.

    Nice buy. When you open it up, I'd be interested to know how the floppy's are powered.
