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...
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...

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...
UNIVERSUM Multispiel 2006
Basic pong system based on the popular AY-3-8500 chipset from General Instruments....
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...

HEWLETT PACKARD  HP-65
The HP-65 is arguably the most elegant and classic pocket calculator ever built. Boasting many firsts, including being the first fully programmable hand-held calculator with built-in magnetic card reader, it was used for course corrections on Apollo, and was introduced as "The Personal Computer" when keypunch machines were still the most common input device for mainframes. While pricey, nearly $800 back in 1974, its quality and innovations garnered many enthusiasts, spawning clubs like ...
MULTITECH  Microkit 09
The Microkit 09 was a 6809 microprocessor teaching system and was sold as a kit....
HEWLETT PACKARD  HP-9825
Although the HP-9825 was presented by HP as a desktop calculator with some computer features, it was really a desktop computer, in fact the first all-in-one computer everyone could use without being a computers guru. This system was lauched quite at the same time as the first personal systems (Altair 8800, Imsai 8080), however, its concepts and features were much more advanced but its price was about ten times the one of an Imsa...

AMSTRAD  NC 100
By 1992, once fast-growing Amstrad was struggling. Its reputation as a PC maker had been undermined by a batch of dodgy Seagate disk drives at the same time that bigger-name vendors were engaged in a price war, squeezing Amstrad out of the market. The NC 100, NC 150 and NC 200 were three products that its founder Alan Sugar was hoping would help revive the company's fortunes. Cutting edge, they were not. Both were based...
DYNALOGIC  HYPERION
The Hyperion was produced by the Infotech Cie. of Ottawa, a subsidiary of Bytec Management Corp. It was the first portable IBM-PC compatible computer, released three months earlier than the Compaq Portable. The machine offered powerful features for a 1982 computer, including dual 360K 5.25" disk drives, built-in 7-inch amber CRT and a video out jack for displaying CGA graphics. The keyboard slides underneath the main unit and locks into place. It...
SORD  IS-11c
This is an upgraded version of the original IS-11 computer. Basically, it has a much wider LCD screen (80 x 25), which means it's 6 times larger than the original IS-11 screen. The IS-11c is more wordprocessor and communication oriented than the IS-11, that's why wordprocessing and communication software are included, as welle as a Modem. The DB-PIPS package (spreadhseet, graphics, file manager) delivered with the IS-11 is there available on a ROM cartridge. ...
NEC  APC
This professional computer from NEC was a very nice system at the time. With its high resolution graphics (640 x 475) and its large disk capacity (1 MB), it sure was impressive in 1982! Bill Czermak recalls: I developed the first version of MIPS (Manufacturers Integrated Production System) on one of the first colour APCs sold in Australia. I added a 5 Mb NEC harddisk later. The 8" floppies held 1.2 Mb. I am told my original system is in a museum in the Geelong...

SEGA Genesis 3
Manufactured by Majesco under license by Sega, the Genesis 3 was a budget release of the Genesis hardware. Appearing in the United States in 1998, it was much smaller than previous versions and shipped with the six button controller included. However, the Genesis 3 lacked the expansion port of the older models making it incompatible with the Sega CD add-ons. It was also incompatible with the 32X. A number of games were also re-released by Majesco, who ...

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.

I recently *saved* a FP-6000 box and FP-6028 box from an e-waste skip at my place of work, no other items (yet), no keyboard or monitor. Does anyone have any documentation for this equipment?
