OLIVETTI  A5
Olivetti introduced a mainframe about 1960 which was called ELEA, then in 1965 the Programma 101 - which was probably the world's first real desktop computer. Then a little later they introduced the Audiotronic range of "office computers". The first was the A770, which was replaced by the A7. The A5 was the desktop version. The Olivetti Audit 5 or A5 was largely an electro mechanical computer. It printed via a golf ball typewritter mechanism at the astonishing speed of 16 character per second...
TRIUMPH ADLER  TA-1600
The TA 1600 system was introduced in 1983 at the CeBIT (which was only a part of the "Hannover-Messe" by that time). TA showed a few sample applications and the 1600 family in general. Triumph Adler's hardware included also the 1600/20-3 which was supplied with a permanent-swap-HDD-unit. This unit had a memory/storage capacity of 2 x 8 MB (Winchester technology). Triumph Adler said the system (the 1600) will fit the demand of medium-sized businesses, due to the facts that these companies w...
MIDWICH Microcontroller
Called the Midwich Microcontroller, this British computer was developped to provide a small desktop micro capable of running other equipment throug a variety of interface cards. In 1979 an Italian IC manufacturer designed and began to sell a single board micro system that could be expanded to a full system with a VDU, discs, etc. Called the Nanocomputer, it was manufactured by SGS Ates and one of the distributors in the UK was Midwich. The Nano was somewhat expensive and suffered from a numbe...
RADIONIC Model R1001
This is an extremly rare TRS-80 Model 1 clone, based on an other clone: The Komtek 1 (from Germany). It's equiped with a Level II basic and powered by a Zilog Z80 cpu. _________ Contributors : Incog...
BASF 7100
The BASF 7000 systems are professional computers from Germany. They seem to be based on the Microterm II Intelligent Terminal by Digi-Log Systems, Inc. There were several models in the 7000 serie....
PERTEC PCC 2000
PCC 2000 is a professional computer released in 1978. It was designed in 1978 by Pertec, the company which merged with MITS by the end of 1976. The PCC is conceived as a monobloc machine, where the display and two 8" floppy disk drives are built-in the main case. The mechanical keyboard offers separated numeric and editing keypads. The system is powered by an Intel 8085 microprocessor and offers 64 KB RAM. The whole thing was apparently delivered with an extended Basic language, which has...
TERTA TAP-34
TAP 34 is a self design of Terta company from Hungary. Primarily it was designed as a terminal for big computer systems but it was also able to process data alone. The main integrated circuits were assembled in the USSR and in Hungary by Tungsram, but several parts were imported from other countries. The built-in monitor was a DME-28 monochrome CRT made by Orion. This company was famous for its televisions in Hungary and the other KGST countries. The floppy drive attached to the compute...
MCM COMPUTERS  MCM 800
Based on the MCM 70 / 700 (see this entry for more info), the MCM 800 followed in 1976. It was faster, included 16 KB RAM (instead of 8 KB for the 700), and included the ability to drive an external monitor. Among other things, MCM 800s were used in one of the first french industrial network called Gixinet (along with ARCnet). This was a token-bus type network developped by the Gixi company....
IMLAC PDS-1
The Imlac PDS-1 is a graphical minicomputer made by Imlac Corporation (founded in 1968) of Needham, Massachusetts. The PDS-1 debuted in 1970 and is considered to be the predecessor of all later graphical minicomputers and modern computer workstations. The PDS-1 had a built-in display list processor and 4096 16-bit words of core RAM. The PDS-1 used a vector display processor for displaying vector graphics as opposed to the raster graphics of modern computer displays. The PDS-1 was often used with...
COMMODORE  C64 Golden Jubilee
Between 1984 (in the U.S.) and 1986 (in Germany), Commodore International celebrated the 1,000,000 machines sold mark in these respective countries by issuing special "Gold" editions of the Commodore C64. These machines were regular C64 models, except they were Golden-colored and fixed on a commemorative plate. The following information comes from Death Adder : Until December 1986, 1,000,000 Commodore 64s were sold in Germany. On this occasion, Commodore Buromaschinen GmbH (...

TRIUMPH ADLER  Alphatronic PC models P1/P2
This first Alphatronic computer by the german company Triumph-Adler is targeted for the business and education. The main software applications were for management, billing, wordprocessing (TRENDTEXT), calculation, etc... The Alphatronic uses the MOS (Micro Operating System) operating system. There were in fact two models available: P1 and P2. The Alphatronic PC/P1 had one floppy drive, and the PC/P2 had two. The picture beside seems to be a PC/P2. There was SKS/BASIC on Disc, startable ...
ELWRO 800 Junior
The Elwro 800 series was designed in 1985 by people from the Automatics Institute of Technical University in Poznan, following the request of Polish Ministry of Education. The final product had to be: • Cheap, • ZX Spectrum compatible, • Appropriate for school use. The computer went into production in 1986 in Elwro Electronic Factory of Wroclaw, Poland. It was fully Spectrum compatible. Designers also added network capability to access t...
TOSHIBA  HX-20 / HX-21 / Pasopia IQ
This is a classic MSX 1 computer, quite similar to the HX-10, except that the shape is different and there are two cartridge slots. Its special feature seems to be a primitive word processor software built-in ROM. You need a separate Kanji ROM cartridge for it to work. Does someone know the other differences? In its native country (Japan), the HX-20 was also named Pasopia IQ to fit in the Pasopia family developped b...
DATA SOFT  PCS 80
The Data Soft PCS 80 is the french version of the IMSAI PCS 80. See this entry for more info....
TANDY RADIO SHACK  1000 TX
The Tandy 1000 TX was similar to the Tandy 1000 in that it had an external keyboard and casing. The difference, however, was the addition of an 80286 CPU on the TX model; otherwise, it was nearly identical to the Tandy 1000, including the odd parallel port edge connector. The TX had a 3.5" drive, with an optional 5.25" drive. It contained hookups for two joysticks in the front along with the keyboard, and included a volume control with a phono input on the fr...
FUJITSU  FM 11 AD 2
The FM-11 AD2 is an evolution of the FM-11 AD. It is delivered with the OS-9 operating system. There was also a FM-11 AD2+ model with enhanced features like 256 KB RAM instead of 128 KB. Torsten Dittel, from Germany, adds: Looks like the FM11 AD2 had an HD63C09EP from Hitachi installed. It was a PIN/Code compatible CMOS/3MHz version of the MC68B09E from Motorola. For licensing reasons Hitachi kept as a "secret" that it...
SONY  SMC 70G
The SMC 70G was designed for professional video applications. With its genlock, it was possible to mix picture from the computer and pictures from a videodisc or any other video source. It is the successor of the SMC 70. The RAM can be expanded (up to ??) thanks to RAM cartridges....
SONY  Hit-Bit 501
This is a quite particular MSX 1 computer as it has a tape-recorder built-in (BitCorder)with its own counter, and a kind of joystick screwable in the middle of the cursor keys, a bit like the Spectravideo SV-318. Apart from that, it seems to be the same machine as the Hit-Bit 75. There is even the same built-in software (Personal Data Bank) composed of an agenda, a memo and an address manager, with which you can save your work w...
CORVUS SYSTEMS Concept
The Concept system was intended to be an individual diskless workstation operating within a Local Area Network (LAN). Each user could use the ressources of the computer and share both data and peripheral devices, including mass storage devices. The network connected computers offered some attractive cost advantages and allowed several people to work simultaneously on the same task. Users' data were shared through the Corvus OmniNet networking system which was the core product of Corv...
SONY  Hit-Bit F700
The Sony HIT BIT 700f was the successor of the Sony HIT BIT 500. It met the MSX 2 standard. It was sold as a semiprofessional computer; it came with a program on disk called HiBrid, which can be seen as a graphical shell around MSX-DOS. It had a saved CMOS memory, which held time, date, password or screen definition. It also came with a MSX-DOS floppy, the MSX operating system, made by Microsoft, which looks like CP/M.

SEMI-TECH  Pied Piper
I still have one with allthe manuals. It has the high density floppy drives, the canvas carrying case and the video option for connection to standard televisions. I used it for work when traveling to write my reports in the motel at night. The TV option was wondeful. I did the reports in Word Star. Those were the days?

EACA  COLOUR GENIE / EG-2000
It was the colour version of the VideoGenie/System 80 which were compatible with the TRS-80. It was never intended to compete with the CoCo, which wasn''t very successful anyway.

SOUTH WEST TECHNICAL PRODUCTS CORPORATION 6800
I worked with a brilliant engineer named Charlie Moore at a GM plant doing manufacturing R$D. When micros came out we wanted to experiment with one to see how it worked. Our IT people had to approved any computer purchase. They refused, claiming any micro was a toy and unusable in business. We called SWTP and told them our purchasing dept was sending them a RFQ for a "machine controller". They were to quote $395 and when a purchase order came in, ship the 6800 Kit always calling it a "machine controller" in all correspondence. We hooked it to an old ASR-33 teletype machine and later a tape recorder (Kansas City Std) By the time IT found out we had it, we were building a 16 channel high speed data acquisition system for our Detroit Diesel Test Dept for $71K that DEC could not touch for under $500K. Charlie wrote software and I designed hardware. Charlie was using an assembler he bought from a tiny startup named "Microsoft". Several times I answered the phone and the voice at the end asked, " Is Charlie Moore there? This is Bill Gates."
