I would strongly dispute your claim at the start of the video that "in
1981, the Color Computer was considered a first-class business machine."
By who?  Radio Shack marketed it as a kid's toy, basically, probably out of
concern that it would draw sales away from their other computers like the
Model 1.  The price was high because the components cost more then, not
because it was considered a machine suitable for business.  The clunky,
blurry (on a TV) 32-column display made it look anything but a machine
intended for serious business purposes.
