    Default Tandy 1000 spotted in commercial spot

    There's a new Ghostbusters themed Quickbooks ad on TV right now. In the background is clearly a Tandy 1000 desktop case model.

    It's the original 1000 (or 1000A) because it only has three expansion slots. But without the monitor or keyboard in sight, I think they're just using it to prop up the dot matrix printer that's sitting on top of it.

    I guess finding a DEC Rainbow would have been a bit of a stretch for the prop department.

    (Nitpicky observation: in the movie the printer was *next* to the system unit, not on top. Obviously that would also need a bigger desk.)
