Dick Smith Electronics stores marketed the System 80 computer in the early 1980s as a cheaper alternative to the expensive Radio Shack TRS-80.  Whereas the TRS-80 was made by Tandy in the USA, the System 80 was made by Eaca in Asia.  The computer is fondly remembered by enthusiasts but has become very hard to find in recent times.  Some 11,000 System 80 computers were made, and only a few hundred of them are known to still exist.  When I can find them I'll list them here, as well as support parts to keep yours up and running.


All my System 80s are checked over, tested extensively and repaired as necessary.  They come with a 90 day warranty, just like Dick Smith Electronics used to offer, and friendly after-sales assistance should something go wrong after the 90 days is up.

Dick Smith System 80 Blue Label (S/N: 82 36496)

Blue Label "Third Generation" was the second of the System 80 line, and this one is in great shape.  No repairs were required by me and it works well.  Previous owner has doubled the internal memory to 32K.  It's yellowed some of the keys and the case but its not too bad and I've seen much more yellowed System 80s (look more like cheese than a computer).  Has a sound amplifier and speaker.  Comes in the original box.  Tested and working $OLD with 90 days warranty.
