Fair enough. Small island country, with about 2 or 3 computer shops,
and as a result a restricted range of stuff on sale. We probably only
got best-sellers, or high-margin kit -- one shop had a Torch Z80
twin-disk addon for a BBC Micro in its window. And a small sample set
at school, too.

There was a Tandy, and I think they had several models of TRS-80 over
the years. I don't think I recall ever hearing of anyone _buying_ one,
though. ;-)
