Computer User

Computer User was a short-lived TRS‑80 magazine created by the publishers of Interface Age, a popular computer magazine that began in 1976.

Unlike many other TRS‑80 magazines, Computer User was a professional, glossy publication from its first issue in November 1983. It was heavily promoted, with promotional copies of the premiere issue sent to subscribers of competing magazines.

The Next Step

“The Next Step” was a popular column written by Hardin Brothers that began in the February 1983 issue of 80 Micro. Originally conceived as a five part column about integrating BASIC and assembly language, “The Next Step” went on to become one of the longest running columns in the magazine.

The focus of “The Next Step” was programming the TRS‑80 in assembly language. It covered the Model I and Model III at first, but had largely switched to the Model 4 by 1984.
