‘Portable’ computer from 1979 wins CNET’s old tech contest

  • Posted on March 18, 2017 at 8:29 am

CNET’s From Old School to Tech Cool Contest asked our Facebook fans to share photos of old tech, with the ten most popular qualifying for a chance to win the┬áPanasonic TC-PST60. This plasma TV is a 2013 Editors’ Choice and the only TV to ever receive a 5-star rating from CNET.

Congratulations to Garret W, whose photo of an old-school portable computer won the contest. TV reviewer David Katzmaier selected the winner from among the top ten vote-getting entries.

“There was a lot of great old tech among the final photos,” said David, “but I liked the ‘portable’ TRS-80 computer from 1979 best. With a monochrome monitor, separate keyboard, archaic peripherals and even a three-ring binder, all encased in a massive wood trunk complete with handles, it shows just how far computing and portable tech have come.”

Thank you to everyone who participated and a special congratulations to the ten finalists with the most user votes. Check out their submissions in the photo gallery below.
