    Whoa, that brings back some time back. I remember when Tron first came out back in 1982. That started my love for SyFy and Space movies. This is the first I herd much less seen of a new Tron. I checked out the trailor, damn I hooked, can't wait till it comes out.....

    Awesome find!

    Like Bassfisher, Tron blew me away when it was first released.. Those were the days! With our ZX81 computers and Tron we thought an amazing future was only a few years away....lol

    The new film looks cool and I'll watch out for when it's released..

    Home Computers Looked Primitive

    Home computers, never even saw a ZX81. I don't think they were that popular.

    Check it out:

    ZX81 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I'm talking circa 1982/3.....? Can't really remember lol it was so long ago....
    Also it may have been called something else in the states?

    No Big Marketing Push

    Office computers were sophisticated in that time period. Bulky comparatively. Ten key by touch- very necessary. That thing looks like a word processor. Home computers had no big marketing push, you didn't see um in stores or on T.V.
