   LATEST ADDITIONS
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 (...

FUJITSU  FM 8
Introduced may 1981, the FM 8 was one of the first Fujitsu micro computers (after the LKIT-8 hobby computer in 1977). In any case it was the first member of the FM series, FM standing for "Fujitsu Micro". At that time its features were really impressive: bi-processor (even an additionnal Z80 cpu could be installed), 64 KB RAM, bubble memory, built-in chinese characters ROM, 640x200 high resolution with 8 colors and no proximity conflict! The FM-8 was developed by employing innovative design a...
SANYO  MPC 100
The MPC 100 is a classic MSX 1 computer with 64 KB RAM. Its main particularity is to be delivered with a light pen. There is of course a connector to use it, and more surprising a hole is placed at the top right part of the case to store the light pen when not in use! However, some versions had the light pen hole but were delivered without neither the pen nor its connector. The MPC-100, apart from its memory size, is the same computer as the
NEC  PC 6601
The PC-6601 is basicaly a PC-6001 MK2 with a built-in 3.5'' disk drive. The second optional disk drive could also be mounted. The N60m Basic od the PC-6001 MK2 has been enhanced to the N66 Basic. The japanese adverts focused on the fact that this computer could sing with its optional speech synthesizer! More info badly needed!...
COMMODORE  C116
The C116 was revealed at the 1984 Summer CES. It was the cheapest Commodore computer ever made. Bil Herd, the machine''s designer has said, on many occasions, that the original host for the TED was the C116, a $49 machine intended to compete with the Sinclair line of machines. The resulting design was then twisted by management, to become the 1xx, 2xx, and 3xx machines... 116, 232, 264, 364 etc respectively (the difference between the 264 and 364 being that...
ORDISOR PCC 2000
PCC 2000 is an obscure professional computer released in 1980. It was marketed by Ordisor in France, (a company belonging to the group Sofragem) but the machine was in fact imported from U.S.A. The PCC 2000 was designed there in 1978 by Pertec, the company which merged with MITS by the end of 1976. The only information source we have for the french version is an advert from may 1980. Looking at the picture, the PCC seems to be conceived as a monobloc machine,...
SHARP  PC-1403 (H)
As the PC-1401 family was rather successful, Sharp released an update three years later. The two new models were named PC-1403 and PC-1403H. The differences were not large, but very helpful. They had a better display, with 24 instead of 16 characters on the same display area, and lowercase letters could now be used. Thus, there was an additional SML key to switch between uppercase and lowercase entry mode. Moreover, matrix calculatio...
NBI Hantu
All the information we have come from a copy of a 1975 brochure of an NBI Hantu (later renamed to the System II). It boasted an Intel 8008 processor up to 16K of RAM and two 8" 250K floppies. NBI was the first software based wordprocessing system on the market. At that time, the competition had to change firmware each time the program was changed. NBI officially stood for "Nothing But Intials", however the real origin of the name NBI was "Necton Bilinium Incorporated" a name chosen by ...
LOGYSTEM  ECRITEXT
We don't know much about this strange French computer. It was designed by Patrick Jossier, an award winning French designer, to be used as a word processing computer and only few were sold. This computer was dedicated to word processing (with a 80*25 text resolution), had a 'hidden' CP/M OS launching the text processor at start. Main CPU was Z80/4MHz, the other Z80 was dedicated to keyboard/display, almost like an 'integrated terminal'. This computer was 100% french made, from hardware to ...
MICROKEY KFFT  PRIMO A-32
The Primo computer series was manufactured by Microkey Kftt. (Kutatási Fejlesztési Termelési Társulás), and was originaly developed to be a school computer in Hungary. The system was sold in various memory configurations: A-32: 16K ROM 16K RAM A-48: 16K ROM 32K RAM A-64: 16K ROM 48K RAM B-64: 16K ROM 48K RAM Other differences were: A type did not have built-in joystick and serial ports. B type could works togewther with the Commodore VC1541 floppy drive un...
ROBOTRON A5105
The Robotron A-5105 was intended to be used in former Eastern Germany schools where it should replace the outdated KC line of computers. Therefore, it was also called BIC which stands for "Bildungscomputer" ("educational computer").. Up to 16 computers could be linked into a network which was comprised of one teacher computer and several pupil systems. Each station could access the printers and plotters. A monochrome monitor was attached to the case ...
