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...

MITSUBISHI  ML-FX1 / FX2
The ML-FX1 is a classic MSX 1 system with 64 KB RAM and a complete full-stroke keyboard including a numeric keypad. Its case is very similar to the Mitsubishi GL-10 MSX2 computer. The ML-FX2 is the same computer but with some software built-in: Data-base, Wordprocessor, Paint program and Communication tools. Oscar reports : It was my first computer. It was one of the few MSX 1 that had an extende...
RIL (ROLLET INTERNATIONAL LIMITED) Robot
It's a very uncommon french system. It's a very complete AY-3-8500 based sytem: 7 selectors and 2 buttons ! This system inludes a Robot option that allows the player to play against the system and to set its "intelligence". It's very odd looking, I mean, not a clone from another system but an original shape. Each paddle is detachable. Now, the funiest part: Inside the system is a mother board with SOE OC5000 written on it ! Well, the OC-5000 is a French pong produced by a French company (Soci...
DATAVUE Spark
The Datavue Spark was one of the First Laptops Ever Made. It Featured a Powerful (Back Then) Intel 8088 with a clock Speed of 9.77MHz. It had a blue 5" x 10" screen (which was big for 1987) made by Epson that supported 16 shades of blueish grey. Plus, it was backlit, which made it very bright and readable. DOS could be run on this system, but needed a boot disk to do anything. Due to a very high retail price, very few Spark were sold (at least in Australia). In the US, the price was a...
BILLINGS BC-12
Virtually no information about this Z80 based computer - we even don't know its name - and the Billings Co. which name came from Mr. Billings, its founder. Along with this machine, Billings also produced another system named 6000 which specialized in organizing and managing distributed processing applications (see advert section). The operating system OASIS was a subset of IBM's CMS running on Virtual Machines (VM) of the IBM 370. The commands have the same syntax and the same options. The...
OLIVETTI  M10
The Olivetti M-10 is basically the same computer as the Tandy 100 or the NEC PC-8201. All these machines were in fact conceived by Kyocera Corporation (Japan). Thus they all have very similar characteristics. Olivetti is well known for computers with special design, and the M-10 is not an exception. Compared to the Tandy 100 or NEC PC-8201, the M-10 is quite beautiful. The main physical difference is the LCD screen which can be...
SPICA Ines
The Spica Ines was not really a true Spectrum clone. Spica actually started its business in Slovenia by manufacturing a pro-keyboard case for the Sinclair Spectrum. The user had to insert its Spectrum card into the case to obtain a near-professional system with a high-quality mechanical keyboard. Thanks to Bojan Pesek for information and pictures. ...
UNIVERSUM Color TV-Multi-Spiel 4014
This videogame system is one of the most advanced consoles of the pong generation. It could be called a "bridge" system since it offers classic pong games but has also 4 motor bike games included, like a kind of transition between old pong systems and upcoming "cartridge based" consoles. There are therefore 14 games built into the system, hence its name: Tv-Multi-Spiel 4014. They include: 4 motorbike games, 2 shooting games, Solo, Gridball, Pelota, Football, Basketball, Tennis, Ice Hoc...
MISC Arcade video games
Arcade video games have always played a major role in video games history. Technologicaly in advance upon home video game systems, they have inspired generations of game developers. Indeed most of the computer/consoles game library was directly copied from Arcade games. At least until the 90's when home systems began to match arcade systems performances. This was the beginning of the end for the Arcades....

VECTOR GRAPHICS  MZ
The Vector Graphic MZ featured the same hardware basis as the VIP model: S-100 based system with a Z80A processor running CP/M operating system. However, its separate main unit had an 18 slot motherboard and integral dual floppy disc drives (2 x 315 KB). The system came with 48 KB of RAM, 4 KB monitor ROM, and used the Vector 3 "Mindless Terminal". Although it may look like a terminal, the Mindless Terminal only had a parallel keyboard, and a B/W monitor. All...

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...
