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 9801 E
The PC-9801E belongs to the famous NEC PC-98xx family. This is not an IBM PC compatible system. Its architecture is original. Unlike the PC-9801F, the PC-9801 has no built-in disk drives....
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...
MSX  MSX 2
After the (relative) success of the MSX 1 computer (in Japan, Europe and South America), Microsoft and ASCII presented its successor. The main new feature was the very enhanced graphic modes, no other computers were able to display such graphics! The 128 KB VRAM was very impressive! It had a battery-backed clock and a new MMU (to handle more than the Z80 64KB limit). The MSX 2 standard, like the MSX 1, was designed by ASCII, the new operating system MSX DOS 2.0 ...
TANDY RADIO SHACK  TRS-80 Model 12
The Tandy TRS-80 Model 12 was a business system intended to replace the Model II which was widely used as an accounting and management system by numerous small companies. Unlike Model II, it was a single board system with a white case instead of the typical dark grey one of previous TRS-80 models. It could be expanded by adding an optional card cage in which six expansion cards could be inserted, for example the monochrome high resolution card. However it was ...
SAITEK Micro Computer (?)
This original computer was to be released by Saitek to rival popular computers of the 80's, mainly the Commodore 64. Designed by Iain Sinclair, it remained a project and was never marketed. The picture you see here is a moulded plastic prototype. The particularity of this project was to design the available expansions so they can stack up above the computer, from the vertical expansion slot. The project was even called "Wafer Personal Computer". From the onl...
MICRONIQUE  HECTOR MX
The Hector MX is the successor of the Victor / Hector 2HR and Hector HRX. It has the same characteristics as the 2HR and the HRX. The 2HR uses Basic, the HRX uses Forth, the MX uses both as available programming languages ! Its 64 KB ROM contains BASIC 3X, HRX Forth, a version of Logo and a machine language editor/assembler. Several other languages were available on cartridge as well, but there are not true ROM cartridges. They p...
YENO MX-64
This is a classic MSX 1 computer. It was also sold under the Daewoo brand. It's one of the few Korean MSX computers... It has 64 KB RAM... Not much more to say !...
AMPERE  WS 1
This was a very unique system with an extraordinary design. It was conceived by Ampere and produced by Nippon-Shingo in 1985. Sadly, it failed the US FCC certification tests and so was not available on the US market, which helps explain why it is so rare nowadays (along with its high price and narrow-targeted market)... One of the main characteristics of the Ampere WS-1 was the use of the APL programming language : an interpreted language extremely synthetic and very rich. APL ...
FUJITSU  FM New 7
The FM-NEW7 as its name suggests is the successor of the FM-7. It uses high-integration memory and gate array LSI to reduce price while maintaining FM-7 functionality. But on the paper, there is no real difference between the FM-NEW7 and the "old" FM-7. The system is powered by two Motorola 68B09 micro-processors. One is the main CPU and the other handles video and inputs/outputs. There is a (optional?) Kanji (Chinese characters) ROM offering: 453 JIS non-kanj...
MULTITECH  MPF-1 Plus
The MPF 1P (MicroProfessor 1 Plus), is an improved version of the MPF 1. Like its brother, it is a learning tool for use in the teaching of microprocessor, microelectronics, and control technology. It has a better keyboard. Instead of the hexadecimal keyboard of the MPF 1, this one is a real "QWERTY" one, with CONTROL and SHIFT keys. There is even a RESET key at the top right (red key). The VFD display is also larger. It can now display 20 characters instea...

Testimony of Restoration with the help of Martinez Lexie(Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com OR +18168926958)..

I have been in financial mess for the past months, I''m a single mum with kids to look after. My name is Renee Joan Rothell, and am from Ridley Park, Pennsylvania. A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about Mr Martinez Lexie of ( Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com )$ that he can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. She advised, I gave it a try because she and some of her colleagues were rescued too by this Godsent lender with loans to revive their dying businesses and paying off bills. so I mailed him and explain all about my financial situation and therefore took me through the loan process which was very brief and easy.. After that my loan application worth 78,000.00 USD was granted, all i did was to follow the processing and be cooperative and today I am a proud business owner sharing the testimony of God-sent Lender. You can as well reach him through the Company website: http://lexieloans.bravesites.com OR text: +18168926958
