The Tandy 1000 was a line of IBM PC compatible computers made during the 1980’s by the American Tandy Corporation for sale in their chain of Radio Shack electronics stores in Canada and the USA. The Tandy 1000 would be the successor to their influential TRS-80 line of computers, the Tandy 1000 would eventually replace the COCO line of 8 bit computers as well when Tandy decided to prematurely end that project in favor of the Tandy PC line of computers. Most Tandy 1000 models also featured line-level sound and composite video RCA outputs built onto the motherboard so that a standard television could be used as a monitor, albeit with much poorer video quality.

More importantly, the PCjr featured enhanced graphics and a sound chip that could play three voices simultaneously rather than the one voice of the original IBM PC. IBM contacted the game company Sierra On-Line, asking them to design a game that would show off the enhanced graphics and sound of the PCjr. The result was King’s Quest. The Tandy 1000 version of the Silpheed soundtrack was a significant improvement over the PC speaker version.

The Tandy 2000 was only partly PC compatible. It was better in several ways- it shipped with 128 KB of memory and supported up to 768 KB of RAM, had 8-color 640 x 400 graphics incompatible with standard CGA displays, and used 720 KB quad-density 5-1/4″ floppies (vs. 360 KB double-density). Its four expansion slots were proprietary and not compatible with IBM PC cards. It was designed to be compatible with the IBM PCjr‘s enhanced graphics, and the original Model 1000 arrived one year after the Tandy 2000. Tandy went out of its way to paint the Tandy 1000 as clearly superior to the IBM PC, much as it had done in 1983 with the Tandy 2000.
