A vintage, classic, blast from the computing history past. This is a Texas Instruments TI-99/4a computer system. I believe it dates to the late 70's or early 80's. Cosmetically, it's in pretty nice shape. A few nicks/dents and blemishes, but nothing too trouble-some or tragic. A wee bit dusty in the corners and the enterprising new owner might give it a cleaning inside as well. The unit and all accompanying items have been tested and appear to be working normally. I was surprised that it would look so good on my large screen tv.
Included is the original box and protective styrofoam insert. Outer box is a little beat up with over-all wear but is structurally sound. Also included is the ac power supply, video modulater switch box, one set of wired remote controllers w/instructions (joysticks), 35 cartridges, and a programming book entitled: Easy Programming with the TI-99/4a. The video modulator is the standard issue TI variety which has the anntenna type lead for connecting to your video source. Depending on your video source hookups, you may need to locate an adaptor to convert to coax. There is no system documentation nor are there any instructions with the cartridges. What you see is what you'll get.
This is all OLD, so no guarantees. Again, I did run it through some practice on a few games and it also booted to the BASIC interpreter just fine. All keys are working..
The 35 included cartridges are:
Addition, Addition & Subtraction I, Addition & Subtraction II, Adventure, A-Maze-Ing, Alpiner, Beginning Grammer, Blasto, Burgertime, Car Wars, Centipede, Computer Math Games II, Disk Manager 2*, Early Learning Fun, Early Reading, Editor/Assembler*, Football, Hangman, Home Financial Decisions*, Household Budget Management*, Hunt the Wumpus, Indoor Soccer, Jawbreaker II, Mind Challengers, Multiplication I, Munch Man, Music Maker, Number Magic, Parsec, Personal Record Keeping, Protector, The Attack, Tombstone City, TI Extended Basic, and TI Invaders.

Disclosure: While our home is smoke free, many of my items have been acquired 2nd-hand over the years and may have once "lived" amongst smoke, but I will openly disclose anything that has obvious odors in the listing description. We do have cats, so it's possible a stray hair may tag along with the item.
About me: Private seller just trying to downsize my collections (accumulations of stuff) and free up space on the shelves and in the closets.
