IBM PCjr. Strange, but true. Still, it had a wireless (infra-red) keyboard.

The only other thing around was a TI99/4A the neighbors had.

    Didn't see it on the list, so I was going to make a comment but first surfed the comments to see if anyone else was the same.

    Fond memories: Getting a copy of COMPUTE and hand-typing BASIC programs in (BearMath) and playing Rocky's Boots (construct AND/OR gates) to understand programming and playing GATO, a submarine game with my dad ("Flank Speed Ahead - gotta catch the convoy!").

    Good times...
