80-U.S. Journal, later renamed Basic Computing, was one of the first personal computer magazines. It was devoted to the first mass-market personal computer, the TRS-80, which beat out the Apple II by a few weeks.
Begun as 80-Northwest Journal in September 1978, printed with dot-matrix printers, it became 80-U.S. Journal in January 1979, and moved up to professional printing. In July 1983 the name changed again to Basic Computing after the magazine absorbed the readership of at least two other TRS-80 focused magazines.
The magazine went under in mid-1984.
