Modded Tandy CoCo 3

The third iteration of the Tandy Color Computer, the aptly named CoCo 3, was the last and best in the line of CoCos. It was after all released in 1986, sported 128k of RAM that could be extended to half a mega, featured a new graphics chip, better sound and even came in a much slimmer and better looking case, all the while remaining largely compatible with the earlier CoCo micros. Apparently, it was internal politics that killed it off and not its quality...

Anyway, what I actually wanted to say is that you can easily grab an excellent Tandy Color Computer 3 over that the lovable magisterrex retro site. The computer seems to be in great condition and comes with two incredibly handy modifications: an on/off switch and a cooling fan.
