T-S Horizons Nos. 4 and 5. Affordable Quality for the Timex Computer User

Portsmouth, OH: T-S Horizons, nd [c. 1984]. Small 4tos, 22 and 30 pp., printed on newsprint and saddle-stapled into illustrated wraps.

Two issues of an unknown number published of this rare newsletter devoted to users of Timex computers, issued in the wake of the introduction of the TS 1000 to the American marke t in the summer of 1982, and with many articles on the new computer. Timex Sinclair was an early 1980's joint venture by Sinclair Research, based in the UK, and Timex of Portugal. The TS 1000 was the first mass market computer to retail for under $100 - a major milestone in the development of the personal computer. However, Timex withdrew from the US market in 1984, an event marked by a very funny illustration on the cover of no. 4.

Includes a two part article across the issues on Bank Switching for the TS 1000 Parts 1 and 2, articles on games, an article on the "WORM" word processor, support for the 2068 in the wake of the end of US distribution, etc.

Paper toned, with a notch to the lower edge of no. 4, and old address label ghost to cover of no. 4. Very good. Rare, with OCLC locating no holdings. Item #26524
