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...

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....
SEIKO MC-2200
The Seiko MC-2200 was a clone of the Sharp PC-1245. Besides, it was made by Sharp. The main differences were the case color, black instead of grey and brown for the Sharp, and the location of the 16-character display which was slightly moved to the right. The internal electronics was identical to the PC-1245's The tape-printer interface was also the same as the Sharp CE-125 but with black and grey colors This rare machine seems not to have met a great s...
AMSTRAD  NC 200
The NC200, was the last model of the NC series which was comprised of the NC 100 and NC 150. It was a very much smarter, more professional design, with a larger fold-out screen - offering 80 columns by 16 lines - a built-in 3˝ inch, 720 kilobyte floppy disk drive for storage, but at a heftier price tag of Ł329. It also had a spreadsheet, which the NC100 did not, as well as twice as much built-in memory at 128 kilobytes....
ACT Apricot F1
After the launch of the Apricot PC, largely inspired by the Victor S1 which sold well in the UK, ACT developed another computer, the Apricot F1. This new system was marketed equally as a business system and as a home-computer (with its TV video output for example). The design of the F1 is quite innovative with its original shape and infrared keyboard. The main unit is much more deep than large, and the straight line of the whole system was quite stylish for the time. There was no lead or...
FRANKLIN  ACE 500
The Franklin ACE 500 was a 100% Apple IIe and Apple IIc compatible computer with a built-in 5.25" disk drive and 256 KB of RAM. It looked pretty much like a black //c, featured all of the standard Apple ports and a better keyboard with a numeric keypad. It was also very similar to the Laser 128 in design and features. The ACE 500 was the last Apple II compatible Franklin manufactured. Its capabilities and abilities were identical to the Ace 2000 series. The...
TANDY RADIO SHACK  TRS-80 Model 200
The Tandy 200 was an evolution of the successful Tandy 100. It offered more RAM and a bigger display. The computer was powered by internal batteries, providing up to 16 hours(!) of use. A lot of utilities were in ROM: a telecommunication program (telcom) which used the built-in modem, MSPLAN spreadsheet (light version of Multiplan), text editor, calendar, address book and BASIC Programming Language. 3.5" floppy disk drives could be connected via the RS-232....
APPLE  APPLE IIc
The Apple IIc was the compact (the "c" stands for compact) version of the Apple IIe. It had the same basic characteristics as the Apple IIe but included a lot of features which were optional on the IIe: floppy disk drive, 80-column display, color display, 128 KB RAM. But unlike the Apple IIe, it had no expansion slots, so it was hard to add features to this computer. It ran either with DOS 3.3 or with ProDos and had the first version of QuickDraw in ROM. The A...
SHARP  MZ 2200
The MZ 2200 is basicaly a Sharp MZ 2000 with an optional built-in 3.5" floppy disk drive and no buil-in monitor....
SHARP  PC-1210 / 1211 / 1212
The Sharp PC-121x series is generally regarded as the first commercially available pocket computers ever. Its design was based on the way normal pocket calculators were built, but the case was turned 90 degrees to allow for a wider display, and most mathematical function keys were replaced with alphanumerical keys. Its main intended use was BASIC programming, although it could be used as a calculator as well, by simply typing in the math functions with the alphanumerical keyboard in one line of ...
ADVANCED COMPUTER SYSTEMS ACS-1007
This single-unit computer was sold in France in 1980. There were in fact three models : - Series A with two tape-recorders, - Series B with one disk-drive, - Series C with a hard-disk (ACS-1740) ? Three languages were delivered with the system : Extended Basic, Fortran and Cobol. ...

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...
