Peter (Peres),
The Texas Instr. part you are looking for is available from Newark
Electronics for $2.78 ea. (part #09F1015).  You can order from their WWW
site at:  http://www.newark.com

Just a side note, but wasn't GW-BASIC from Zenith Data Systems?

Happy Holidays all,
John

"GWBASIC" was shipped on the original IBM-PCs as "basica" - "advanced basic."
There was some sort of weirdness that occured, and the version that shipped
with unbundled DOS ended up named gwbasic...

Not Quite.  Basica relied on code in the IBM PCs rom to work since the
original PC had a version of basic in ROM. The clones never had basic in
ROM so needed a more complete version. GWBASIC was a full basic image that
was compatible with the IBM version and would run on any system where
Basica would run only on IBMs systems.

 Not surprising of course, since the original IBM PC didn't have enough
RAM to run it otherwise.
