TRS-80 Model 102 – Hands on with one of the 1st “laptops”

Hands on with a Radio Shack / Tandy TRS-80 Model 102.  One of the first laptop computers.  Ever.  32k of RAM.  Runs for 20+ hours on AA batteries.  Mechanical keyboard that is a joy to type on.  Built-in 300 baud modem.  A truly fascinating device that is, crazy enough, fairly usable in 2018 — over 30 years after it was built.
