Tandy/Radio Shack Models 100, 102 and 200
We call these Model "T" computers!

Club 100, San Diego, CA

Dear friends, on April 30, 2011, Rick Hanson, the Proprietor of Club100, passed away. Over the past 2 decades, Rick had nearly single-handedly kept the Model 100 (and family) laptops going through his amazing dedication, passion and support. Through this dedication, Rick became friends with and touched the lives of many people across the globe and will be missed dearly. Be at peace Rick. In a humble attempt to uphold his vision, several of the Club100 members are striving to keep Club100 going. - Ken -

REX ... by Steve Adolph, inventor/engineer
REX ... the ultimate option ROM/RAM add-on. Until now, Model 100/102/200 were limited to use of only one option ROM at a time, and file storage required an external device. Those days are over. REX plugs into the option ROM socket, and via its user friendly management OS, users have access to 768 Kbytes of flexible flash based storage. Flash memory is both rewritable and erasable, yet retains its data with zero power draw, making it ideal for battery powered laptops like the Model T. This memory may be used for option ROMs, RAM backups and even file storage. With loads of file and program storage, and all the ROM software ever produced, REX is the ideal memory enhancement for the ModelT. In a word: Heaven! REX are priced at $60 each. REX are in stock and ready to ship. Order Form
