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...

RADOFIN ELECTRONICS LIMITED AQUARIUS 2
The Mattel Aquarius II had exactly the same characteristics as its predecessor, the Mattel Aquarius. Its only enhancements were the RAM (20 KB instead of 4 KB) and the mechanical keyboard. In fact, the Aquarius II only had 4 KB of built-in RAM but was supplied with a 16 KB RAM cartridge extension. Another difference is that the Aquarius II came with Extended Basic built-in. Mattel gave up the computer market and sold all the rights and computer stocks to ...
MATSUSHITA  National JR 200
It is the successor of the JR 100. The JR-200 had good features compared to its japanese competitors : 8 colors, 2400 bauds tape speed and 3 voices synthesizer. But sadly there were no real graphic resolution, only a combination of semi-graphic characters. The Panasonic JR-200U is the same computer but aimed at the american and european market. Read its page for more information, and a complete history text....
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...
UNITRON (BRAZIL) Mac 512
This machine was the first Macintosh clone in the whole world. In Brazil it is almost unknown and there are people who doubt its existence, but it really did exist! This computer almost started a commercial war between Brazil and the United States. Apple persuaded the U.S. government to use everything it could against the Brazilian clone makers (increases in import taxes for brazilian products such as orange juice, shoes, etc.) until this machine was no longer made. Brazil had a tr...
TIMEX COMPUTERS TC-2048
In fact, two different systems were called Timex 2048. The first, called TS-2048 (for Timex-Sinclair) was designed by Timex USA but never passed the prototype stage. It was a 16K version of the TS-2068 with the same silver case but reduced features, a Kempston joystick interface and additional video modes. At the time when it was ready to be launched, the market had moved to 48K and 64K systems, and there was no future for a new 16K machine....
OLIVETTI  P6060
The P6060 was a computer which looked like a typewriter. It had a built-in thermal printer (80 column, 80 character per second). This printer featured graphics supported by system software for scaling, framing, offsetting, axis drawing and alphanumeric labeling. The P6060 could be programmed with a special extended version of the BASIC language which featured random and sequential file handling and matrix operations. There were two models: the basic configuration with 8KB user RAM and a s...
NOVOTON TJ-141
A french pong system which uses the GI AY-3-8500 chip, thus playing the 4 basic pong games. No shooting games here... It is the same pong as the Alex Video Spiel TG-621 or the Conic TV Sports TG-621. Read these entries for more info. ________ Thanks to CS2010 for the picture....
PHILIPS  P/330
These photos were sent by Pablo Alvarez Doval (Thank you!). This computer belongs to his uncle, unfortunately, he has no information about it. He says: "It's a huge computer, built in a metallic desk, with a printer, two 8" floppy drives, 12" green-screen monitor (I am not sure, but I do believe it is 12"), and a keyboard, everything you needed built in. It even had a chair to compliment it! Obviously, it is some kind of office computer". It has indeed a 12" screen (white characters 25 x 80) ...
SANYO  MBC 4000 - MBC 4050
The Sanyo MBC-4000 series succeeded to the MBC-1150. It was the same all-in-one system including one (MBC-4000) or two (MBC-4050) 5.25" floppy drives, a monochrome display and a very complete keyboard. It featured a true 16-bit Intel 8086 CPU and shipped with the CP/M-86 operating system as well as a Basic interpreter and a spreadsheet called Goal. MS-DOS 2.11 was also available on this machine. Thanks to

HEATHKIT / ZENITH  Z-100/110/120
My very first computer was an H100 with 256K RAM. I joke with students now that their watch has more current computing power. But for its day, it was a great machine. I wrote my PhD dissertation on it with Peachtext word processing software and a Toshiba dot matrix printer.
