What is this PC?

Was watching Only Fools and Horses last night and saw this in one of the episodes:



Was wondering what kind of computer it was? Seems to large to be an Amiga, as all the ones with built-in keyboards were smaller.

the plugs on the back also don't match. Perhaps it is just some sort of old apple computer?

Ah, I didn't consider Tandy computers. That is a piece of history that I'm not familiar with, good read for later

But yeah, looks like a Tandy CoCo 2 or 3 (the TRS80 was dropped from the name. As they weren't really TRS80's).

Simple question, simple answer
Looks like they cut out a big hole and then realised they hadn't enough keys to fill it... Anyway, hope you agree that it's really not a beauty.

It's all about how desperate you are

EDIT - I had not read the 'your mother' comment before posting this and I was talking about the machine itself, not anyones mothers! Please do not misunderstand!

It's properly best if you keep comments like this to yourself, because not all members here like comments like that, including myself.

Classic TRS' were pure class. I still have a TRS-80 Model II collecting dust somewhere in my sister's basement. The CoCo 2 definitely doesn't shine

That was my first computer. I wanted a specy.... I got a TRS80. Think my dad was out of work when we got it so he went for the cheapest thing he could find. I think it was 25 from Tandy in town, as it had just gone obsolete, the cassette player was 35!
The Cuthbert goes ......... range were pants and games were hard to track down. I only really liked Tube Way Army (Scramble).
My next machine was the A500 Batman Pack.
Still, i miss it now though
