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 (...

CZERWENY CZ-1000
TADEO CZERWENY "CZ" is a an electromechanical company, which was founded by Tadeo Czerweny in September 1958. It is located in Parana, Entre Rios province, in Argentina. The company made transformers, electric motors, etc. In the 80┤s Czerweny marketed the Timex Sinclair┤s models, under its own name. The CZ-1000 is thus a rebadged Timex Sinclair 1000, which is itself a Sinclair ZX-81 with 2 KB RAM. In Argentina Czerweny mod...
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...
CROMEMCO  System I / II / III
CROMEMCO was founded in 1974 by two Stanford Students, Roger Melen and Harry Garland, who lived in the CROthers MEMorial Hall dormitory on the Stanford campus. Eventually CROMEMCO needed space to receive visitors, and moved out of the dorm to Mountain View, and incorporated in 1976. Early products were cards for the S-100 bus, as used by the Altair and IMSAI computers. These computers were built aro...
CONITEC Prof80
This computer was never sold in computer stores. It is an homebrew machine built around an unique board called PROF80. The Prof 80 was a CPM Board for CP/m 2.2 or (later) 3.X., manufactured by Conitec, Dieburg, Germany. There is also a branch in US. The company still exists, and the chief designer of the board, Joachim Hanst, is still working there. It was sold in France in kit form by the Pentasonic stores chain. User had to solder all the components onto the bare board. The PROF80 bo...
APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES  Microbee 32
Around 1978 Owen Hill teamed up with an electronic components company, Applied Technology of Hornsby (Sydney), to build a small computer he had designed. Applied Technology had been previously producing kits in Australia for S-100 boards. The Microbee was released as a kit in 1982 on the cover of Your Computer magazine, the manual was included free with the magazine. They were an immediate hit, being quite a powerful little system given the cost. Applied Technology eventually changed...
SHARP  MZ 80A - MZ 1200
The Sharp MZ 80A was the "enhanced" version of the Sharp MZ 80K. It had about the same technical features but offered a typewriter keyboard, better display, enhanced text mode and a Parallel printer port. Like the MZ 80K and the MZ 80B, it had no language in ROM. The disavantage was that user had to load a language from tape each time he switched the machine on, on the other hand, any language or machine code program could be l...
ENGLISH ELECTRIC CO. DEUCE
The DEUCE (Digital Electronic Universal Computing Engine) was an early British Computer manufactured by the English Electric Company in the 50s from designs used by the UK's National Physical Laboratory (N.P.L.) for the ACE Pilot Model (Automatic Computing Engine). Physically, the DEUCE consisted of a cabinet, roughly 10' x 8' x 6', which housed all the circuitry needed and had the console at one end. Sti...
COMMODORE  AMIGA 2000
The Commodore Amiga 2000 is the successor of the Amiga 1000. As the Amiga 500 was the "low-end" model of the new products, the 2000 was considered the "high-end" model in 1985. Like the original Amiga, it uses the same memory configuration with chip RAM (512 KB which can be accessed by the custom chips) and fast RAM (the rest of memory which can be accessed only by the CPU). There are three drive bays : two 3.5" front bays and...
AMSTRAD  NC 150
The NC150 hybrid was an NC200 in the body of an NC100. It offered 128KB of memory and an interface for connecting a floppy disk drive. However, it was only sold in France and Italy. But the NC100 and NC200 "form factors" appear to have lived on in the shape of the Brainium DreamWriter 450 and 500, portable machines aimed at the US education market....
SOBRELEC Totus
Extremely rare french portable computer! Sobrelec was based in Bretagne, near Brest (France). It was founded by Marcel Richard, former Thomson engineer, in 1974. They used to produce goods for Thomson or Marine Nationale (french Navy). They also produced the LX-500 and LX-525 computers for Logabax. At the Sicob 1982 exhibition they presented their first own computer : the Totus. It is luggable system, quite similar to the Osborn...

Went to Keesler for SAC HQ training, but got assigned to Duluth from 1972 to 1975 Enjoyed the computer maintenance career 30594. Spent 34 years and retired as a Chief.At Duluth the shop manager was a civilian. He used to come at night to drive us crazy installing faults and making us troubleshoot them. Anyone remember 4cv was the main clock.

SOUTH WEST TECHNICAL PRODUCTS CORPORATION 6800
While in medical school in 1978, I bought and built a SWTPC 6800, with CPU, SS-50 bus, and 4k static ram card. Couldn''t afford an ASCII kbd ($$300!) and had no display - so a friend retrieved a Burroughs 32 character Plasma display (Ascii parallel interface) and a kbd removed from a pulp and paper mill - but it had 5-bit Hollerith-encoded outputs. Rewrote the monitor in EPROM to do the kbd code translation to ascii, and to make display on the 32 character display work. Later added a custom board to do file read/write to tape, based on software that directly drove an op amp connected to the audio-in of a stereo cassette deck. Had to add a 1 MHz crystal to the board (replaced the RC circuit) - Then added a board that mapped memory to an 80 x 24 character monochrome video display, and a massive 16kb dynamic memory board. Then with tiny basic (3.95kb), was able to program to heart''s content. It played star trek too.
