In a recent eBay purchase that I made, the seller included a 1980 brochure advertising word processing capabilities of the TRS-80 Model I computer system. The advertised system prices ranged from $2,046.95 for a cassette-based system with a dot matrix printer, to $5492.95 for a system with two 80k floppy drives and a daisy wheel printer. Computers sure have gotten a lot cheaper since then!

The brochure was printed in black and white halftone on both sides of an 11"x17" sheet of paper, folded in half to form four pages. I scanned the original at 600 DPI:
