BANDAI TV Jack 5000
The TV Jack 5000 from Bandai released in 1978 is one of the first cartridge based system from Japan. It's the equivalent of european and american systems like the Hanimex SD-050, Acetronic Color TV Game, Prinztronic Micro 5500, SHG Blackpoint, Binatone Cablestar, Radofin telesports, etc. There have been tons of systems like these. The TV Jack 5000, like all these systems, use cartridges based on General Instruments chipsets which offers different games on each chip. That's why all these sy...
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...

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...

SHARP  X68000
Here is the first of a great family. It is the successor of the Sharp X1 family, shipped with a unique square screen monitor, fist in a grey case, then in black. Instead of using the Zilog Z80, it uses a powerful Motorola MC 68000. This computer (and all its family) has great features (look at the emulator), it was more powerful than the other 68000 computers at this time (Atari ST or Amiga 500) :...
AM INTERNATIONAL JACQUARD SYSTEMS J100 - J500
The Jacquard J100 and J500 Videocomputer line was developed at the home offices of Jacquard Systems, Inc. in Santa Monica, California. Development started in 1975 and by 1977 the first units of the J100 were installed. The base unit included two 8" single-sided floppy drives and could be expanded to up to 14 users. The OS was Jacquard's own DOS. The CPU of the J100 was National Semiconductor's IMP16 microprocessor and the J500 - a follow-on single-user system - was implemented using the AMD B...
APPLE  Apple II clones
This page is dedicated to all the unclassifiable Apple II compatible computers. There were numerous models, mainly produced in the Far East, but also in Europe, the USA and South America. Some of them bore exotic names like Lemon, Orange, Peach or Pineapple, while other were simply no-name systems. In most cases the mainboard and the case were pretty similar to that of the original Apple II. However, the manufacturers often attempted to offer an additional technica...
CIFER SYSTEMS 2683
The Cifer 2683 was the stand-alone version of a large range of dumb terminals released in the UK by the Cifer Systems Limited Company. The 2683 was actually a Z80 based 2632 terminal to which a second Z80 card has been added, providing 64 KB of user RAM and a floppy-disk controller. The machine was used as a Z80 software development or general purpose CP/M system. A ROM/EPROM card allowed to develop and run custom programs. A 300 x 1024 pixel graphics board was also available, inclu...
ITT  3030
The ITT 3030 is a modular system with several options available. The original CPU for example is a Z80A, but a 8086 CPU board was available... More floppy disk drives and hard disks (5, 10 and 15 MB) can be added. The average access time of the hard-disks is 170ms, and the transfer rate 600 kb/s. It is also possible to add up to two 8" disk drives in addition to the original 5''1/4 disk-drives. They can be simple-sides/simple-density (256k) and are thus compatible with the IBM 3740 format,...
FRANKLIN  ACE 1000
The Franklin ACE 1000 was launched in 1983. It was the successor of the ACE 100, released in 1981. The ACE 1000 had 48 KB RAM and allowed for a 16 KB Language card. It also supported lower-case letters, had a numeric keypad, and a larger case. From the factory, the Ace-1000 did not support colours but there was a colour chip that could be added by the dealer for $50 (this dealer add-on was an attempt to protect themselves legally against lawsuits from Apple)...
ASCI SystemX
The ASCI SystemX, also called U68 was a single board training system that was used in an educational environment during the early 1980s. It was mounted in a wooden box and covered with a smoke colored plastic lid. When it was closed, all the electronic part was covered, except the 16 key hexadecimal keypad and a seven digit LED display. The main board featured a Motorola 6800 processor and an Exorciser bus connector. Several I/O boards could be connected to the system allowing micr...
SOCIÉTÉ OCCITANE D'ELECTRONIQUE OC 4
The OC 4 is a nice and funky handheld pong produced by the French company, Société Occitane d'Electronique. Like most pong systems of its time, it uses the General Instruments AY-3-8500 chipset, which offers 4 paddle games + 2 shooting games not implemented here as there is no connector for a light gun. Each player hold one of the paddle. Player 1 paddle holds all the main electronic of the system and this is where game selection and options are operated. The other paddle (player 2), holds...
IMSAI  VDP 80
The IMSAI VDP-80 was the first commercially succesful business computer, accounting for almost 50% of the store sales where I worked at the time. It was delived with 48 KB or 64 KB of RAM, and newer systems offered the Persci 299, double-sided, double density floppy drives. Both models of Persci (277 or 299) were a dual drive with a shared voice coil positioner in the center. The primary CP/M applications were Electric Pencil or Wordstar which made them a hit in law offices. FMS-80 (databa...
MULTITECH  MPF-1/65
The MPF-I/65 is an initiation computer based on the MOS Technology 6502 CPU (hence the name 65). It was designed and produced by Multitech in Taïwan which would eventually become Acer in 1987. Multitech was then specialised in such small computers used to study electronic principles and micro-processors. The MPF-I was based on the Z80 CPU, the MPF-I/88 on the Intel 8088 CPU, the Microkit 09 o...

TANDY RADIO SHACK  1000 SX
The 1000SX was the first DOS computer I owned...in 1992, when I bought it used. It was underpowered compared to new machines on the market, but it still worked (though 16kb of the 640kb didn''t, down to 624).

With an external 20MB HDD, a 3.5" drive raided from a 1000HX (and an adapter) and a 14.4K modem, I was able to do my comp sci work and other from home. It was good enough for logging in to the college''s VAX via Kermit, later for using Lynx on the local Freenet. I wouldn''t be able to live with it today, but I''m glad I had it at the time.

GAMATIC 7600
I also have one of these but one of the main resistors has burnt-out (first resistor off the positive feed, after the large cap). Think the first value was brown but can''t make anything else out, if anyone could help I would be very grateful.

TIMEX / SINCLAIR 2068
It was my second computer. My first was a Timex 1000. I modified the Commadore''s BASIC so I could run it''s programs on the Timex 1000.

MULTITECH  MPF II
I just bought MPF-II in a good condition from internet auction. The computer and external keyboard work, connected from "Monitor" output to the flat TV.

I did not know about the existence of such a model until I saw it at auction. Is there any resource available where one can download any software, preferably as .WAV files for loading through the Cassette interface.

I have also 5 "official" cassettes with it: PYRAMID, MICRO-NURSE, SNAKE, BURN-OUT, BLITZ, but have zero knowledge are these tapes still readable.
