Welcome to, the most popular website for old computers.
Have a trip down memory lane re-discovering your old computer, console or software you used to have.

There are actually 1244 systems in the museum.


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...
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....
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...
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...
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....
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 (...

The only difference compared to the FM 77 AV seems to be an improved 3.5" disk-drive with a capacity of 640 kb. Like the FM 77 AV, there were two models : the FM 77 AV 20-1 with one disk-drive, and the FM 77 AV 20-2 with two....
OKI  IF 800
This computer had an integrated dot printer which can print on 40 to 132 columns at 120 cps, a 12" color graphic monitor and a dual 5" disc drives. A lot of cards were designed to be placed into the three expansion slots: an 8" disk controler, centronics interface, IEEE488 port, ADC/DAC card or ram expansion (64 or 128 KB). A bit of trivia: the video card has its own Z80 CPU. Apparently this computer was marketed by BMC outside Japan. Alexander Velin says : ...
The computer has an integrated monitor and separated keyboard. It was used as main business computer in Slovenia and also in schools, standing next to Commodore C64 and Sinclair ZX Spectrum series; and normally equipped with Turbo Pascal 3.x and Wordstar. Iskra Delta was one of the biggest producers of computer systems in former Yugoslavia. Their systems could be found in almost all large companies in Yugoslavia where they were ...
The SuperPET SP9000, also known as Micro-Mainframe or MMF9000, was developed in conjunction with the Department of Computer Science of the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada. It was primarily designed with universities and scientists in mind. Based on the CBM 8000 series design, The SuperPet has two processors, a standard MOS 6502 like all Pet systems, and a Motorola 6809. It could run all the original C-8000 software as well as modern 680...
ATARI  520 / 1040 STe
The Atari STe is the successor of the Atari STf (The 'e' stands for 'enhanced') and is almost fully compatible with the STf. In september 1986, Atari decided to make a successor to the STf. They planned to equip it with enhanced video features : Atari said then that the STe will have a 640 x 400 with 16 colors among 4096 and a 320 x 200 with 256 colors among 4096 graphic modes. Unfortunately, eventually, the STe will have none of these graphic modes. The new...
NEC  PC 6001 MK 2
The PC 6001 MK II was an improvement over the orginal PC-6001. It was available in two color cases: silver and ivory. The system could work under three different Basic modes: N60 Basic, N60 Extended Basic and N60m Basic, each one offering different text and graphic modes, the maximum being 320x200 with 4 colors. There is a ROM holding 1024 chinese characters.

The ACE 2000 series consisted of three computers the 2000, 2100, and the 2200. The 2000 had no disk drives, the 2100 had one disk drive, and the 2200 had two disk drives. All featured a detachable keyboard, the same 1.02 MHz 65SC02 processor, the usual scattering of expansion slots around the motherboard and the half-height case. Graphics modes and sound capabilities were in line with the Apple ][e. On the front panel, it had a row of ...
Almost ten years after having conceived the Micral, world first commercial microprocessor based computer, André Thi T. Truong, joined the young Normerel Company managed by his old friend Jean René Tissot. In a short time, he designed the OPlite, first computer Normerel would produce. The Oplite was a PC compatible system featuring some innovative concepts. The case held a dual floppy disk drive and a removable 9-inch display. Standard connectors allowed an...
Acorn's ABC-310 was to be the flagship of the Acorn business computer range. As far as I can tell, the 310 is the rarest variant, and it is the only one to have no direct equivalent available via a 2nd Processor card. When the ABC range was dissolved, Acorn already had 2nd Processors (a method of adding a new CPU to the BBC, similar to adding a Z80 on a card to an Apple II, but very different in execution and with far more applications) - the 65C02, the Z80, the Acorn Scientific 16032 (1MB R...
Little is known about this computer. Help welcomed. The Proteus III was apparently made in France. It is powered by a Motorola 6800 CPU. There were two models : Proteus III A with 16 KB RAM, and Proteus III B with 32 KB RAM. There was even a third version (Proteus III C ?) with 48 KB RAM. It can display 16 lines by 64 characters but has no specific graphical resolution, only semi-graphic characters which can be used to simulate graphics. 5.25'' disk-drives (Double Density)...

Computers in the CBM-II series was never sold with integrated floppy drives. But probably it was planned for before at a early stage.

The CBM/PET 8296D that was using similar "housing" however, was sold with integrated 8250 duel floppy drive .


I am pleased to see this webpage. Anyone still having pictures of the machine Toshiba T-200?

BANDAI Gundam RX-78
If I may suggest an alternative introductory sentence-

I would replace
"The Gundam RX-78 was originaly a very popular manga animation movie from the 80''s. Bandai then marketed a personal computer under this name..."

"The Bandai RX-78 was named after the titular mecha from the 1979 anime series Mobile Suit Gundam"

or something along those lines.
