BANDAI TV Jack 5000
The TV Jack 5000 from Bandai released in 1978 is one of the first cartridge based system from Japan. It's the equivalent of european and american systems like the Hanimex SD-050, Acetronic Color TV Game, Prinztronic Micro 5500, SHG Blackpoint, Binatone Cablestar, Radofin telesports, etc. There have been tons of systems like these. The TV Jack 5000, like all these systems, use cartridges based on General Instruments chipsets which offers different games on each chip. That's why all these sy...
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...
UNIVERSUM Multispiel 2006
Basic pong system based on the popular AY-3-8500 chipset from General Instruments....
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...

ATARI  STACY
The Atari Stacy is the transportable version of the Atari STf. It has a 9" monochrome LCD screen which can only use the 640x400 graphic mode. The other STF graphic modes can only be used with an external color monitor. It uses 12 small batteries and can be used for five hours. It has the same internal SCSI interface as the Mega STe. Unfortunately it has no energy management. It was a bit big and heavy (more than 7 kg) and will be replaced with the
MICRODIGITAL Tk-95
The goal with the TK95 was to offer a true Spectrum compatible system with a case and keyboard as strong and convenient as a Commodore 64. The inside of the machine was neverthless quite similar to its predecessor, the TK-90, with some ROM improvements that increased the degree of compatibility and corrected some bugs (ROM No Maskable Interrupt) of the original Sinclair and Timex models. Two BASIC command were added, ...
TEXAS INSTRUMENTS  TI 99 / 4A
The Texas Instrument TI 99/4A was a very succesful computer. A large number ROM cartridges (36 KB each) were developped for this computer, as the popular Extended Basic. Up to seven peripherals could be connected : 32 KB RAM extension, RS232c, Disk controler (90 KB per disk, up to 3 disk-drives), speech synthetiser, Peripheral Expansion box, and so on... One item of note is that the bus architecture for the Peripheral Expansion box (PE) was the basis for the N...
CANON  V-10
The V-10 is a classic MSX-1 computer. The V-10 has less memory than the V-20 but is much harder to find by our times......
SHARP  X68030 / 68030 Compact
The X68030 Pro was the successor of the X68000 XVI Compact. It was the last evolution of the X68 series. It was followed by the X68030 Compact which used 3.5" floppy disks instead of the 5.25". There were lots of hardware developments on this computer, in particular an accelerator card based on the Motorola 68040 or 68060....
DIGITAL EQUIPMENT CORPORATION DE 68DT
Software for this system includes the debugger (in ROM), a BASIC interpreter, a FORTRAN compiler and a linker. The ROM debugger features interactive translation of assembly language mnemonics, tape, disk and printer commands and multiple breakpoints. The system was available in two configurations : the DEC68 DT (pictured above) which includes a FDD, and the DEC68 C which fits into a smaller case without the FDD. It was priced from $2000....
VIDEO TECHNOLOGY  LASER 128 / 128EX / 128EX2
The Laser 128 EX is the successor of the Laser 3000. Like the 3000, it is fully compatible with the Apple II computer, but has enhanced features. Video Technology designed its own Apple II compatible ROM (Apple lost a lawsuit challenging it), this ROM holds an Applesoft compatible version of the BASIC. The "Open Apple" and "Closed Apple" keys have been replaced with "Open Triangle" and "Closed Triangle" keys. The 128EX/2's V...
PEL VARAZDIN Orao
"Orao (English = Eagle) was an 8-bit computer developed by PEL Vara×din in 1984. It was used as a standard primary school computer in Croatia from 1985 to 1991. Orao (code named YU102) was designed by Miroslav Kocijan to supersede Galeb (code named YU101). The goal was to make a better computer, yet with less components, easier to produce and less expensive. Originally a Motorola 6809 microprocessor was planned but was abandoned for the MOS 6502 due to bei...
SYNERTEK SYM1
Synertek was one of the suppliers of the 6502 processor, and the SYM-1 was intended as a chip evaluation board for hardware developers that were interested in programming and interfacing a 6502. The SYM-1 was a single board computer. It had a hexadecimal display and a hex keypad for programs and data entry. It was originally called the VIM-1 until MOS Technology objected to the name. It was actually quite a copy of the MOS KIM 1 offering same fonct...
IBM  PS/1
Please help us improve this description by sending us more info! The PS/1 was IBM's return to the home computing market. It was the successor to the IBM PCjr, although it was compatible with IBM's bussines systems. The PS/1 was a propriatary system at first, but standard components were used later on. The later models included "Rapid Resume" a standby feature. The system uses a LPX form factor (layout). Everything was built into the motherboard and had a four expansion slots of 16bit ISA b...

HEWLETT PACKARD  HP-87
The local public safety/911 dispatch center back in the ''80s in my town (Bismarck, ND) had an HP-87 at their dispatch console that was used to control the outdoor warning sirens (for tornado alerts and such) across town. It was loaded with a custom software package for such, IIRC.
