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...

COMMODORE  AMIGA 1500
The Amiga 1500 was a variation of the Amiga 2000 that was only available in the U.K. in 1990. This system came with two internal floppy disk drives (only one for the 2000), but without hard disk and controller card. Nevertheless, it was a true Amiga 2000 that could be easily upgraded. It also featured one of the latest motherboard version (6.2), the ECS chipset and Kickstart 2.04.

FUJITSU  FM Towns II
The FM Towns II is a follow up to the FM Towns (read this entry for more info). The FM Towns II could read CD audio. 5 LED displayed the sound volume and two buttons was used to change volume. Graphics video features were very powerful: - One could display up to 800 sprite (16x16) on one video frame, - Zoom and screen rotation were hardware features. Display could be rotated to any angle using one single command. - Texts, Sprites and Graphics used three ...
VIDEO TECHNOLOGY  Laser 350 / 500 / 700 / 750
Technically the Laser 350 / 500 / 700 / 750 are completely different from the Laser 100 / 200 / 300 family and thus non compatible with them. All 4 computers are nearly identical but the Laser 350 uses a Laser 300 case while the Laser 500 / 700 / 750 use a "new" case. Though the CPU is still a Z80A compatible one (the D780c from NEC), its capabilities are better. There are now 6 graphical modes, ranging from 160 x 96 in 16 colors to 640 x 192 in 2 colors. The memory size is also bigger ...
YAMAHA  YIS-503 / Diabolik
This Yamaha computer is specialised in music and sound production. In fact it is a classic MSX 1, but if you bought the special Yamaha synthesizer and piano keyboard, then it was clearly different. You got 48 pre-recorded sounds with a quality really surprising for that time, and as it is real synth, you could change or create you own sounds. The YIS-503 is in fact the same computer as the Yamaha CX5M, but it has not got the SFG-...
MAGICLICK Teleclick
This is an obscure Argentinian pong powered by a General Instrument AY-3-8500-7 chipset. Though it looks like a classic pong system, it is interesting for at least two reasons. First, the paddles are built with calculator or remote control plastic cases !! Indeed, once opened, you can clearly see the holes planned for the plastic keys (see "more pictures" section)... The second unsual fact is that, thanks to the GI AY-3-8500-7 chipset, the system offers a game rarely found on most pongs : ...
CENTRAL DATA  2650
The 2650 was first reviewed in the US magazine Radio-Electronics, in the April 1977 issue. This computer was supplied in assembled form with an Editor / Assembler. A 12K BASIC was also available on cassette tape or floppy if you had the HD interface. ...
IBM  5120
The 5120 integrated system was the last evolution of the 5100 and 5110 portable series, and the last 'heavy desktop' computer made by IBM. The 5120 was an intermediate system between the IBM mainframes and the future 5150 PC. Actually, it was the first desktop Personal Computer made by IBM. Basically, The 5120 technology remained the same as the 5100 model: same custom processor and same IBM typical hardware profile inspired by the mainframes technology. ...
KONIX Multisystem
The Konix multisystem console, also known as the Konix slipstream, was a joint development between 2 british businesses, Flare Technology and Konix. Konix were on a high in 1988 after the success of their Joystick range and well known through gaming channels. Flare Technology was formed by 3 ex-Sinclair engineers, all of whome were involved in the aborted Loki "Super Spectrum", which was shelved after Sinclair sold the computer division to Amstrad. Not wanting their work to be wasted, they for...
INGERSOLL XK 410C
The Ingersoll XK 410C is one of the few Ingersoll pong systems released at the end of the 70s. This one offers 10 games in colour (hence the "C"): target solo, target double, basket 1, basket 2, gridball, squash 1, squash 2, football, tennis and ice hockey. Game selection is made through a big slider at the right side of the console. Several switches control game options (speed, player sizes, service automatic or manual). Finally, two orange buttons are used to reset the system and to serve m...
JOUÉCLUB SD-290
The JouéClub SD-290 system is exactly the same system as the ITMC SD-290 (see this entry for more info). JouéClub is a big french toy seller, like the US Toy'r'Us....

TANDY RADIO SHACK  1000 TX
My first computer was a Tandy 1000TX in 1989. No HDD, only 640K RAM and a single 1.4mb FDD. I ran everything from a MS-DOS 4.2 DOS prompt. About a year later, I upgraded the RAM to 768K and added a second FDD. This cost me about $2500. I gave that computer away in 1994. I wish I had of kept it...
