JamesD Posted July 26, 2010 Share Posted July 26, 2010 Understood about the AIM and computers like it, but you'd still have to consider the display extremely limited. Yes but it still meets the original criteria (quoted below). Besides, the first laptops also had very limited displays... would you exclude them as well just on that basis? I was wondering what the first computer with a basic programming language was. When I say "computer," I mean a home computer that you could buy completely assembled, bring it home, plug it in, and start programming in a basic language. Basic would not necessarily have to be built into the machine, but it would have to be available for purchase. I searched the internet and came up with the TRS-80 in 1977. Since my internet search skills are somewhat suspect though, I thought I would ask the question here since I bet a lot of people here would know.
