A LISP programming environment is described for popular z80 microcomputer systems, and in particular an algebra system, NLARGE, written for this milieu. The capabilities of this algebraic package are compared with conventional mainframe algebra systems, and the muMath system for Intel 8080 based computers. This work leads to a discussion of the potential of the home computer for computer algebra and symbolic computation.
