Welcome to, the most popular website for old computers.
Have a trip down memory lane re-discovering your old computer, console or software you used to have.

There are actually 1244 systems in the museum.


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...
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....
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...
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...
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....
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 (...

Also very little information about the Hektor III. The case and keyboard were the same as the Hektor II but the electronic board was completely redrawn to support up to 64 KB of RAM and ROM. Several I/O connectors allowed to connect an extension card, a light pen, a 1200/75 baud modem, a parallel printer and even a mouse. The Hektor III was also loaned to the students for the duration of the Open University course, hence its rarity. Thanks to Ian Hall for all the pictures....
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 !...
The only difference compared to the FM 77 AV seems to be an improved 3.5" disk-drive with a capacity of 640 kb. Like the FM 77 AV, there were two models : the FM 77 AV 20-1 with one disk-drive, and the FM 77 AV 20-2 with two....
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...
The JVC-95 conformed to the maximum graphics specification of the MSX-2 standard. However, like the Pioneer PX-7 it also carried a sophisticated hardware interface that handled video superimposition and various interactive video processing features. In fact, the case housed two separate electronic cards. One was purely MSX, the second was dedicated to additional video functions. Several programs were bundled with the system, th...
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).

NEC  PC 8801
The NEC PC 8801 was the successor of PC 8001. It offered fine colour graphics. It had an optional MS-Dos board. It was one of the fist, if not the first color CPM computer. It ran in three bootable modes: CPM, MS-Dos, and N88-Basic. The N-Basic would natively boot on the system without disk, just like the PC 8001. It also had a software / hardware switch to turn it into PC 8001 mode. ...
COMMODORE  CBM 500 / 600 Series
The CBM 500 had a 40-column, 300 x 200 pixels display. Contrary to the 600 and 700 it also had two ports for joystick, light pen and paddles. The CBM 600 was the same as the 500 but had a 80-column display and 256 Kb RAM. MicroSoft Basic was in ROM. Both models had an option for a second processor (8088 or Z80) to function alongside the standard 6509, the 6509 was then used for I/O, display and keyboard management. They worked under Commodore DOS or CP/M an...
FOX Fox-640
A.Becket says in its site : ''One of the most interesting Apple ][ clones I have seen. This machine claims to be a "Multi-System" computer, and the manual speaks of future advancements, allowing other systems to be housed. Basically, it is an Apple ][ with a Z80 Card, which can boot into CP/M or Apple ][ software. Instead of saying APPLE ][ on boot, it says -:FOX:-'' Source :
The Apple IIGS was designed in response to the Amiga 1000 and Atari 520ST computers & could be considered a cross between the Macintosh & Apple II (naturally, it can't use Macintosh programs). It was (and still is) a quantum leap for the Apple II line. Sales were strong initially and the IIGS even outsold the black and white Macintosh units that were its contemporar...

MSI 6800
I have some reference material concerning the MSI 6800A Computer System. I am downsizing and want to get rid of it. I only request the cost of shipping. I have the MSI 6800A Computer System Operation Manual, the SDOS Disk Operating System Utilities Supervisor''s Reference Manual, the FD-8 Floppy Disk Diagnostics Reference Manual and the FD-8 Operation Manual for Model FD-8.

If interested, please contact me.

The user manuals were interestingly written. A friend opined that a nephew of the Sanyo president who was taking English in Tokyo High School, and not doing well, wrote them. I still chuckle at the memories of deciphering them.

SONY  Series 35 Model 10
They use 3.5 discs. I used this processor for work, I loved it. I still have a lot of the discs.

SIRIUS COMPUTER  Victor 9000 / Sirius 1
I was interested to find this forum - although there doesn''t seem to be much genuine activity on it! In 1981 I was working for ACT (Applied Computer Techniques), the British company which partnered with Victor to market the Sirius 1 in the UK. I was in Scotts Valley California in September 1981 watching the prototype machines being assembled. I recorded a message which announced "I am the ACT Sirius 1 - the number one choice in business microcomputers!", which was played when a UK model was booted up.

six were made. i had one, 5 were destroyed. mine is now in the smithsonian (as is the first wood case pet). was told it would work also with touch screen and jane icon-based operating system (pre windows!). i demo''d it to secretary of education of india in dc. i was director of edu software with sig on loan to white house to launch young astronaut program. marshall smith knew nothing!
