comment
This week's edition comes from Volume 7, Number 7 for the week of November 26 through December 2, 1986. Declared to be the "big thing people are going to want" is the Apple 2GS (GS standing for Graphics and Sound!), which can be all yours for $1,000 to $2,000. VCRs with wireless remotes have also broken the $200 dollar barrier. New on the market are down-sized compact disc players for cars and boom boxes. You can purchase a Sharp portable CD/cassette tape recorder/radio for only $500.

If shopping isn't your thing, you can opt to see Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home in your local theaters.
