I'm sorry to inform you that the Tandy 1000SX without a hard drive is only worth about five buck$. The Tandy ColorMouse, if that is the mouse you have, can sell for as much as $50.00, as it is a high-demand item among collectors. The ColorMouse jacks into the same ports as the joysticks, bottom left front of the machine. The jacks are round DIN connectors, and the ColorMouse has a steel ball and only one button.

With a hard drive it's worth somewhat more, especially if you're bundling a lot of software with it. It's still hard to say exactly what it's worth. There aren't a whole lot of Tandy collectors out there, and plenty of T1Ks around to keep 'em all happy.

Actually. I live in Florida now. It seems you have some physical problems. I have an idea what thats like. I have plantar-phashitis and flat feet and very bad ankles. I cant stand very long, and at night my ankles are in so much pain I cant fall asleep good. Im going to buy a bigger house so that I can use a wheelchair in it :D
I have friends in Roswell. North Georgia is one of the nicest parts of the country, in my opinion. I would rather live there, I think. Roswell is a pretty classy place.
I hope you find a cure for your jaws.
