Tandy 1400 FD; NTS DreamWriter 200

Lab Notes

Two quick ones today. First, a Tandy 1400 FD portable DOS machine with two 3-1/2” floppies and an LCD 80x25 screen. I don’t have a boot disk yet, freaks out after a few minutes, has a fishy odor. Looks cute though.


Early investigation of the odor is inconclusive. Will just have to try cleaning.

And next, an NTS DreamWriter 200. It has the case of an Amstrad 200 but not the same CPU! Adorable little word processor with a 3-1/2” drive. This one works great!


Built in typing test!
