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 (...

SHARP  X68000 Expert II
The X68000 Pro is the successor of the X68000 Expert. It was launched in the same time than the X68000 Pro II and seems to have the same characteristics. However it has a new main board and the stereo scope port has been removed. A X68000 Expert II HD (for Hard-Disk) was also produced....
NOKIA Mikro Mikko 1
MikroMikko was Nokia Data's attempt to enter the business computer market. The computer has 64 KB RAM and is a CP/M operating system. There are several models of MikroMikko 1. The one pictured here is a M6 model which has two 5.25" 640 KB disc drives. But other models differ and can have one or two disk drives (360 KB or 640 KB), and even a built-in 5 MB hard disk (model M7). The MikroMikko 1 features high resolution graphics (800x327). It is quite heavy, the keyboard weighting alone about...
CASIO  PB-300
Basically, the PB-300 was a PB-100 with more RAM and a built-in thermal printer. To our knowledge, Casio was the only company who designed real pocket size computers with integrated printers. Of course, the PB-300 was substantially larger than its elder brother, therefore the keyboard could be laid out more generously, with a real space bar and an additional key for paper feed. Due to the different physical dimensions, the main PCB had a different layout...
COMMODORE  VIC-1001
The VIC-1001 is the first of the VIC series of computers, which includes the tremendously successful VIC-20. The VIC-1001 was only sold in Japan. As such, it includes a special character ROM and keyboard that allow the user to enter Katakana characters. As often with Commodore, the origin of the "-1001" moniker is unclear. It might be a reference to another popular Commodore system, the PET-2001. When he introduced the VIC-100...
POLYMORPHIC  System 8813
The Polymorphic System 8813 was the larger brother of the Poly 88. William Davis reports : This unit could connected to an add-on unit (MS 88) that consisted of two 8" Shugart DSDD disk drives. Near the end Polymorphic System also featured a 10 MB hard disk and a unit called the "Twin Systems" which allowed two simultaneous users on a shared bus. I had all the above, buying the first of three 8813 in 1978 and continuing to use ...
COMPUKIT UK-101
Made in the UK by Compukit in New Barnet, North London, the UK-101 was originally a copy of the Ohio Scientific Superboard II. Two years and various legal battles later the UK-101 became, technically, behind its erstwhile rival. You could buy the UK101 as a kit or as ready made for an extra fee. The kit came in a cardboard briefcase, in which there were anti-static tubes containing the 65+ ICs, a box of IC sockets, and bags containing passives (mainly 0.1uF c...
NEC  PC 8801 FA
The Nec PC-8801FA replaced the PC-88FH. This machine had really powerful sound functions. 6 FM channels could be separated into left and right. User could thus enjoy stereo sound through headphones or external speakers. ADPCM could change sound's frequency dynamically. 256 KB of RAM were provided as sound memory buffer. It was larger than main memory. N88 BASIC offered extended function for controlling these sound features, but not enough. Some of them couldn't be used with BASIC. Th...
HOBBIT Hobbit
Many Spectrum clones were designed and manufactured in the Soviet Union or Russia, among them Spektr 48, Moskva, Robik and Sprinter. Some of them greatly surpassed the features of the original Sinclair Spectrum. The Hobbit was one of the most famous Speccy clones. It was a quite powerful system, mainly used in education, and also known in some Western European countries. Like in many Eastern clones, the processor was a Russian v...
PANASONIC HHC
After buying the Franco-American CIE Friends Amis (Amis means Friends in French) and their hand held computer project, Matsushita manufactured the computer and sold it under Panasonic (RL-Hxx series) and Quasar (HK-2600TE) brand names. About 70.000 Panasonic systems were sold. The system was mainly conceived to run custom software developed by third companies. For this reason, it didn't included powerful built-in software or languages but featured an universal expansion port ab...
MATSUSHITA  National JR 300
The successor of the JR 200. Almost everything was changed, the computer has two CPUs to keep the compatibility with the previous models (JR-200). This machine has also a superimposition feature. In fact it seems to be a mix between a JR-200 and a Sharp X1 system... quite strange ! But apparently this model was never really marketed. A handheld model called JR 800 was launched few time later, but it was not compatible with t...

BRITISH MICRO Mimi 802 / 803 / 804
I was a designer/engineer at British Micro from 1982. I think I worked on the ''803'' onwards. That one had text and graphics mono display modes as has been mentioned. The next ''804'' was text only but with a higher quality display than was common at the time. There was also an ''805'' machine with colour graphics, but that never got into production.

The machines shipped with ''OS/M'', a clone of the CP/M operating system, and had an optional hard drive. Compared with some 8-bit Z80 machines of the time (eg. the hobbyist ZX81) it was far superior, though at a cost as it was aimed at business. I believe it even outperfomed the original 8/16-bit IBM PC.

I can confirm that ''Mimi'' was the name of the owner''s daughter (born ''78).
