What was wrong with the TRS-80 CoCo 2?  It was my first computer.  I
remember upgrading it to 64K of memory, and being amused by the weird
things I could do to the operating system since the processor could only
handle 32K at a time.  And there was a lot of good support for it; at
least two thick full-color magazines, if I recall.
