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 (...

EAGLE COMPUTERS INC. Eagle PC
This was an IBM PC compatible system. It could even boot the IBM PC system disks. Its overall design was smarter than the traditional IBM PC. The keyboard could be stored in a dedicated space under the main unit. The Eagle PC was first designed as a terminal to the Eagle 2000 System which used the 8086 chip as a client. However when IBM released the PC eagle turned it into a low end PC to compete. It worked without any fan and was thus quite silent, which was rare for an PC compatible syst...
HITACHI  AH-200
The Hitachi AH-200 is the same MSX 1 computer as the H2 but without the built-in tape recorder. ...
FRANKLIN  ACE 100
Four years after Apple introduced its computer, Franklin Computer Corporation thought to duplicate Apple’s achievement and released its first computer, the Franklin Ace 100. The ACE 100 was a pure copy of the Apple II. The main board had quite the same design and the ROM content was also exactly identical, aside from the Apple copyright which was removed! Nevertheless, it supported some features that were missing in the Apple II, lower-case letters, and a numeric keypad. The ACE 100 had a...
ATARI  FALCON 030 MicroBox
Few time after the Falcon 030, Atari decided to launch its successor. They worked then on the Falcon030 MicroBox. Basically, it is a Falcon030 in a new case with a full 32bit data bus. (Remember that the Falcon030 has only a 16bit data bus). An other version was planned with a bigger case and three expansion slots. The MicroBoxes CPU were supposed to be upgradable to a 68040. It was never released (How typical!). Only few prototypes were produced, then abandon...
ELECTRONIC PRODUCT ASS. EPA-6800
Virtually no information about this classic training board made in San Diego, California, and mainly used for educational purpose. Like most of the 6800 based systems of the time, the board was equipped with an Exorciser bus connector as well as its own expansion connector....
HOMELAB SERIES Homelab
The HomeLab computers family was conceived in the People's Republic of Hungary by the famous Lukács brothers. József Lukács, the older brother was the creator of the hardware, and the younger, Endre Lukács was the father of software (a great BASIC language). The HomeLab machines were cheap, well-working and easy-to-use Basic computers. They were neither clones nor licencied, but original Hungarian home computers. The HomeLab-2 (see the 'More pictures' section) was also cal...
SINCLAIR  ZX SPECTRUM 128
The Spectrum 128 (code named Derby) is the successor of the Spectrum +. It was made just before Amstrad bought the right to use the Sinclair name in computer products. So it can be regarded as the last "real Sinclair Spectrum". The 128 is the first real evolution of the old Spectrum. It has a lot of new features: 128kb RAM, a new sound chip (Yamaha AY-3-8912), RS232/Midi and video RGB outputs. The Spectrum displays a menu wh...
DRAGON DATA LTD  Dragon 200
The Dragon 200 was basically a Dragon 64 with a modified case allowing a monitor to be placed on top of it. A power LED was also added. The case was designed in Spain by EuroHard, a subsidiary of Dragon Data of U.K. which eventually bought its parent company. EuroHard also built the computer but it was sold in Spain by IDS. The Dragon 200 was a commercial success in Spain and some south European countries, as well as the 200E, a version equipp...
APPLE  Apple II clones
This page is dedicated to all the unclassifiable Apple II compatible computers. There were numerous models, mainly produced in the Far East, but also in Europe, the USA and South America. Some of them bore exotic names like Lemon, Orange, Peach or Pineapple, while other were simply no-name systems. In most cases the mainboard and the case were pretty similar to that of the original Apple II. However, the manufacturers often attempted to offer an additional technica...

REGNECENTRALEN RC 700 Piccolo
Back in 1981, my school, Sofiendalskolen in Aalborg, had a few RC700 systems, and I used them for learning to program in Pascal and COMAL. While most of these were RC702 systems, we also had an RC701 system, which I believe is quite rare. It had an 8" floppy disk drive and used a TV monitor for display.

I have made a website with more information about the RC700 computer from Regnecentralen. The site has a simulator for the RC700, which you can download, or you can try the web-based version of the simulator. There is also a number of disk images with software for the RC700 which can be used with the simulator.

I am interested in finding more software for the RC700. If you have any software on 5 1/4" floppy disks (original or not) made for (or compatible with) the RC700, please let me know. I have made a PC that can be used for reading these and create .IMD disk image files.

SONY  Hit-Bit 501
Please correct the information about this MSX

1 - in the Keyboard section: It''s HB-501F not HB-75F.
2 - Also Hitachi H2 and Sanyo PHC-34 have built-in tape recorders.

Also add: The A/V output is DIN-6 (non-standard), and it''s carry STEREO audio outputs.

BE BeBox
If you really want a BeBox, I would go for the 133Mhz version. The 66Mhz version is too slow to run any version of BeOS very well. I owned a 66 for about 3 years, and it was a sad day when I let it go, but it was more or less useless to me by that point.
