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 (...

ACORN COMPUTER  Archimedes A3010
The Acorn Archimedes A3000 was replaced by the Acorn A3010 and A3020, two simililar but slightly different models, aimed at the home and educational market. See common features text in A3020 page. For the first time, the A3010 was sold in electrical retail stores, next to the Amiga A1200 and Atari Falcon 030, as well as 486 class PCs which where starting to become popular in UK homes. The Acorn A3010 had two Atari style joystick ports, green functi...
SANYO  PHC-28
This is a classic MSX 1 computer. There were 2 versions : the PHC-28L with 64 KB RAM and the PHC-28S with only 32 KB RAM. There is also a third model labeled PHC-28P with 64 KB, but difference with PHC628L is not known yet (help welcomed). There also seemed to be a 16 KB only model... They had small success in France. It seems that the japanese had a different colored case (cream white)....
FUJITSU  FM 77 AV EX
Not much is known about this computer. Can you help ? Apparently, the only difference between the FM-77 AV40 SX and the FM-77 AV40 EX, is the built-in BASIC language. Can someone confirm this ?...
SHARP  X1 Turbo Z III
The X1 Turbo Z III is the successor of the X1 Turbo Z and ZII. The 8bit CPU (Z80) has reached its limits here. Like the X1 Turbo Z II, the Z III is VCCI compliant (electromagnetic emissions control) and has 128 KB RAM as standard, but does not have any remote connector for data recorder. Otherwise it is identical to the Z II. The most famous and strong point of X1 series is the Programmable Charactor Generator(PCG). The languages available were Hu-basic ...
SHARP  PC-1401 PC-1402 PC-1421
The PC-1401 was the first of a series of pocket computers with a new concept. It combined the advantages of a BASIC programmable pocket computer and a scientific calculator. Nevertheless, it was much thinner than, for instance, the PC-1500, and well worth its price. Therefore, the PC-14xx series was very successful, especially among students. The PC-1401 was developed based on the PC-125x series, thus it possessed the sam...
COMMODORE  Amiga 1200
In October 1992 the Amiga 1200 was launched. This machine took the A500 approach to computing with the "distinct" Commodore case, but including the AGA chipset present in the A4000, 2 MB RAM, and the PCMCIA slot from the A600. At the price of ú399 it sold like hot cakes and is seen as one of the best Amigas to date. It appears to have been rushed to launch for the Christmas period with manuals claiming to give you the opportunity to upgrade from 1mb to 2mb chip ram with FPU. It is, however, ...
MYARC Geneve 9640
In 1983, Texas Instruments announced the cancellation of the 99/4A Home Computer. This was shortly after they announced their intention to produce its successor, the TI-99/8, a computer with the "big brother" to the 4A's TMS9900 processor, the TMS9995. Myarc was a company that made a name for itself selling expansion cards for the TI's Peripheral Expansion Box, including memory, RS232, and disk controller cards. They also produced a "replacement" for the large PE Box in a smaller self-conta...
CASIO  PB-300
Basically, the PB-300 was a PB-100 with more RAM and a built-in thermal printer. To our knowledge, Casio was the only company who designed real pocket size computers with integrated printers. Of course, the PB-300 was substantially larger than its elder brother, therefore the keyboard could be laid out more generously, with a real space bar and an additional key for paper feed. Due to the different physical dimensions, the main PCB had a different layout...
SANYO  Wavy 70FD
This is a MSX 2+ computer. It'a kind of Wavy 35 with a built-in 3.5" disk-drive (720 KB). No great enhancements over the MSX 2, the MSX 2+ has 19268 colors instead of 512, some more graphic / KANJI resolutions and the FM-PAC cartridge is included, providing 9 channels of FM sound without drums or 6 channels FM sound with 5 FM drums. The Sanyo Wavy 70FD features the Rensha Turbo, which is a bu...
SCIENTIFIC COMPUTER  SYMBOLICS 3600
This scientific computer had characteristics which were incredible. It had a 170 MB hard disk, when other computers used 10 MB hard disks! It was designed to make CAD or artificial intelligence applications. It used a graphic interface very similar to the Macintosh one (!) and was sold with a mouse. Several languages were supplied with the computer: Lisp, C, Fortran and, InterLISP (developed by Xerox). It used a custom CPU, the 68000 was used to run the keyboard, the mouse and to boot ...
