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 (...

NEC  PC 88VA
The PC-88VA was compatible with the PC-8801 and also had a V3 mode that operated in 16bit mode and allowed to run MS-DOS like OS. This machine had sprites for games in character mode. High quality games such as R-TYPE were released using this mode. Unfortunately this machine had no success and was replaced by the PC-88VA2/VA3 series in 1988.

R2E  Micral 8030 series
Even though we know almost nothing about this Micral series, it was probably one of the first of the Micral 80xx series to be designed by R2E. Its hardware design was the same as the first Micral models, a bus card mounted along with several daughter boards. In the following models, i.e. the 8020 series, R2E had used a single board with expansion slots. The Micral 8030 and 8031 belonged to the same family. At least 4 versions of 8031 were launched, f...
XEROX  6085
The Xerox 6085 was the successor of the revolutionary Xerox Star, first commercial computer to use a graphical user interface (GUI) with the familiar desktop, icons and a mouse. The 6085 series was offered in models for network, remote (linked by Ethernet) and stand alone operation. The main unit was founded upon Xerox's Mesa 8 MHz processor which had 256 auxiliary registers and executed 48-bit-wide instructions. It also used an 80186 as an auxiliary processor. The basic system ca...
NEC  PC 8001 MK 2 SR
The PC-8001 MKII SR was the last one of PC-8001 Series. In 1985, PC-8801 series took the place of the PC-8001 series along with a large amount of available software, so this computer didn't meet a large success. This machine displayed not only Katakana but also Hiragana characters, a Kanji-ROM was available as optional extra.

ADD-X SYSTÈME SMP-8
This is a French professional computer conceived by ADD-X Systèmes based at Blagnac (Toulouse). It was a CP/M, MP/M compatible system powered by a Z80, with 64k RAM. It had 2.4 MB on floppies but an optional 20 MB hard-disk could be added. It was followed by the SMP-5 . There were also two other models, the SM1 and SM2 which were quite similar technically (Z80, 64k RAM), but could be expanded to multipost configurations with up to 8...
KAYPRO Kaypro IV
The Kaypro IV (aka IV'83 later) is not to be confused with the Kaypro 4 (aka 4'84) released one year later. I know, Kaypro model names are REALLY confusing... The Kaypro IV is basically a Kaypro II with DS/DD full-height floppy drives. Wordstar started being included in addition to the Perfect Software suite....
I.S.T.C. (INFORMATIC SYSTÈMES TÉLÉCOM) 5000
Little is known about this system. Help welcomed ! I.S.T.C. (Informatic Systèmes TéléCom) was a french company which was selling imported computers from USA, like the Apple II or the Compucolor. So it wouldn't be surprising if the ISTC 5000 was also an imported system. But which one ? We have not found the answer yet... It is a big system with a built-in 10'' amber display (80 x 25 characters) and one or two integrated 5.25''...
PRAVETZ 8C
The 8C was the last and most improved Apple II clone version produced by the Bulgarian Pravetz Co. The 8C was actually designed in Bulgaria but most of them were manufactured in Tasjkent, former USSR. The 8C had had same capabilities as the Apple IIc. Its main board offered 64 KB of RAM expandable to 128 KB, only 3 expansion slots but had built-in 80-column card, floppy drives controller, parallel printer port and, depending on mainboard versions, RGB, RS232, J...
MITSUBISHI  ML-F48 / ML-F80
This is one more MSX 1 computer with standard MSX features and two cartridge ports. The ML-F48 had 32 KB of RAM, the ML-F80 had 64 KB....
CSIRAC CSIRAC
In 1947, Maston Beard and Trevor Pearcey led a research group at the Sydney-based Radiophysics Laboratory of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research [known as CSIRO* today], to design and build the first Australian electronic computer. The resources they had available included the vacuum tube or "valve" technology and the pulse techniques developed for radar systems during World War II. Their developments paralleled, but were to a considerable extent independent of compute...
