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...
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...
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...

TANDY RADIO SHACK  TRS 80 Model 4P
The Model 4P was the transportable version of the Model 4. Apart from the case and display sizes, technical features were almost identical to the Model 4's. The dual half-sized floppy drives were still single-sided versions but the keyboard, which slided underneath the computer, was far better than the one of the desktop version. The external floppy drive connector was removed, as well as the Model 3 ROM, but a ROM image could be loaded from diskette to run...
HOMELAB SERIES Homelab
The HomeLab computers family was conceived in the People's Republic of Hungary by the famous Lukács brothers. József Lukács, the older brother was the creator of the hardware, and the younger, Endre Lukács was the father of software (a great BASIC language). The HomeLab machines were cheap, well-working and easy-to-use Basic computers. They were neither clones nor licencied, but original Hungarian home computers. The HomeLab-2 (see the 'More pictures' section) was also cal...
CANON  X-07
The Canon X07 was very popular. The RAM could be extended thanks to small cards (which looked like credit cards), although these cards were very expensive. ROM cards were also available for professional applications. The Canon X07 had a video interface and uses a cathodic screen. Thanks to this interface, the X07 could use a new text mode, 40 x 24, and a new graphic mode, 256 x 192, with 6 colours. It is unknown if the two displays could be used simultaneously. An infrared interface was ...
MBO Teleball-Cassetten-Game
This is another incarnation of the classic systems using cartridges based on General Instruments chips. Ten small buttons, horizontaly arranged, are used to select the different games offered by the inserted cartridge. The playing options are activated by the several switches. The joystick are detachable and are connected to the system through connectors placed on each side. The cartridge released are the classic ones for these systems using cartridges based on General Instrument chips: Ba...
SOUTH WEST TECHNICAL PRODUCTS CORPORATION 6800
The SWTPC 6800 was the first computer system made by The SouthWest Technical Products Corporation and the first based on the Motorola 6800 microprocessor. Before manufacturing computers, SWTPC sold home audio kits and a kind of computer terminal called "Television Typewriter". The SWPTC 6800 was introduced in 1975. The first system included a case with power supply housing a SS-50 and SS-30 bus based motherboard, a 6800 CPU card, a 2 KB. static RAM card and ...
TOKYO Colour TV Game
This system is exactly the same as the Binatone Colour TV Game, marketed under a different name. See this entry for more info......
HEWLETT PACKARD  HP-9836
The Hewlett Packard HP 9000 is the ancestor of the actual HP9000 station! The RAM can be extended by blocks of 128 Kb. It is possible to add one or two processors (its power is then brought to 1.7 mips or 2.5 mips). It runs under HP-UX (Unix) and is sold with a database (image 9000), a 3D graphic program (graph 9000), as well as the BASIC, Pascal, FORTRAN and C programming languages. There was a later variant with a 68010 processor that supported HP-UX (the HP version of Unix). It was call...
NEC  PC 9801 F
The PC-9801 was a very popular PC in Japan. PC-9801's design was very similar to IBM-PC, but was slightly extended. VRAM (Video RAM) is strongly extended from original IBM-PC, enabling it to display kanji characters without bitmap memory (as ASCII characters). But I/O systems, Interrupt systems are almost the same. There were in fact three models : F1, F2 and F3. Whereas F1 & F2 models have only 128k RAM, the F3 had 256 kb RAM and 10 Mb hard-disk built-in. More info anyone ? ________ ...
WORLD BOOK Tutor Vision
In 1989, INTV Corp. signed a joint business deal with World Book Encyclopedia to manufacture the Tutorvision. The Tutorvision was basically just a modified version of the original Intellivision Master Console except it's exterior was gold coloured, the buttons on the keypad are bubble-style and not flat like the INTV III version, it featured a power-on LED, the original two circuit boards were now merged into one with the chips all dated 1988-90, and the lo...
HEWLETT PACKARD  HP-9810
The HP-9810 was the successor of the HP-9100. Although it kept software compatibility, its internal hardware organisation was completely different. The core memory was replaced with volatile MOS RAM chips and the display used the new technology of 7-segment light emitting diodes (LED) instead of cathode-ray tube. Arithmetic routines were stored in ROM and user programs in RAM. Several RAM extensions, specialized ROM modules and peripherals (paper tape reader/puncher, line printer, mea...

TRIUMPH ADLER  ALPHATRONIC PC
My very first programming job, when I was 19, was programming accounts receivable, sales lead tracking, and creating some spreadsheets on a Royal Alphatronic PC in 1986, in Peabody at the New England Home Planning Center, a place that sold modular homes. 33 years later and I''m still hacking. All the coding I did on this thing was in Beginners All Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code. I forget the name of the software, but PeachTree rings a bell. Would love to find one on eBay for a trip down memory lane.

TANDY RADIO SHACK  1000
My 3rd computer was a Tandy 1000SX, I stated with a Tandy Color Mini MC-10 and then a TRS-80 4P "portable". I have my original MC-10 and a 4P I was given a few years ago. Recently added a Tandy 1000 HD to the collection. The HD was the original 1000 with a factory Hard Drive.

IBM  PS/2 Model 25
To Anthony B. in Wisconsin. I have an old IBM PS/2 model 25 with learning games, including "your" MATH BLASTER "Rocket Launcher." If you contact me at bdaniels30@excite.com I''ll provide more details and possibly help you obtain a PS/2. Do you also remember Word Munchers, Trash Zapper, and Number Recycler? Those were the days!

My contribution is a VIDEO OUT RCA jack in order to be plugged to a monitor or a modern TV:

TANDY RADIO SHACK  1000 TX
My first computer was a Tandy 1000TX in 1989. No HDD, only 640K RAM and a single 1.4mb FDD. I ran everything from a MS-DOS 4.2 DOS prompt. About a year later, I upgraded the RAM to 768K and added a second FDD. This cost me about $2500. I gave that computer away in 1994. I wish I had of kept it...
