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

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...

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...

NEC  PC Engine Duo
The launch of the PC Engine Duo in 1991 marked the beginning of a new era in the console world. Containing a PC Engine and a Super CD-ROM▓ unit which were unified in a single case, along with the Super System Card integrated on the motherboard, it was the first stand alone console able to play CD-ROM games. Like its predecessor the PC Engine, the Duo was very popular in Japan, selling well and establishing a large fan base. With the same internal hard...
SANYO  MBC-1200 / 1250
The MBC-1200 and MBC-1250 are two 8-bit CP/M machines intended for business market. They were the first Sanyo business machines to have graphics capability. They feature a high-resolution 640 X 400 dot matrix for graphic displays or a 40 line X 80 character text mode. The auxiliary CPU ensures high speed execution of graphics, while the detachable ergonomic keyboard and coiled cable enhance ease of use. There was no difference between the 1200 and 1250 models except that they left the fac...
SAGE COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY Sage II
Sage Technology designed the Sage II around one of the fastest and most powerful chip available at the time, the Motorola MC68000, which was designed, among other things, for the implementation of high-level languages. The Sage II, didn't look awesome. It was physically smaller than an Apple II, but packed a true 16 bits CPU and 512 KB of RAM. Only 128 KB were left free for the user, the remaining 384 KB being used as a RAM disc. The Sage II used the UCSD P-System operating system. ...
MULTITECH  MPF-1/65
The MPF-I/65 is an initiation computer based on the MOS Technology 6502 CPU (hence the name 65). It was designed and produced by Multitech in Ta´wan which would eventually become Acer in 1987. Multitech was then specialised in such small computers used to study electronic principles and micro-processors. The MPF-I was based on the Z80 CPU, the MPF-I/88 on the Intel 8088 CPU, the Microkit 09 o...
OKI  IF 800
This computer had an integrated dot printer which can print on 40 to 132 columns at 120 cps, a 12" color graphic monitor and a dual 5" disc drives. A lot of cards were designed to be placed into the three expansion slots: an 8" disk controler, centronics interface, IEEE488 port, ADC/DAC card or ram expansion (64 or 128 KB). A bit of trivia: the video card has its own Z80 CPU. Apparently this computer was marketed by BMC outside Japan. Alexander Velin says : ...
PHILIPS  Odyssey 2001
This is an exclusive european version derived from Magnavox pong systems (the Magnavox Odyssey 4000 has the same case), as Philips owned Magnavox at this time. It offers three games in color (Tennis, Hockeu & Squash) via a National Semiconductor chip. There are 6 game variations, automatic speed adjustment and the active player gets highlighted. There are absolutely no button or switch on this system, all settings are made with the two buttons on the controllers. One button is used to select ...
SHARP  MZ 2500
The successor of the MZ 2200. The characteristics, especially the graphic characteristics, are impressive, it is one of the most powerful of the MZ computer series. It takes from 2 to 8 seconds to define P.C.G (user generated characters, similar to sprites) with the Sharp X1 serie, while it takes only 0.5 seconds with the MZ-2500. It has features in common with the X1 series and will be replaced with these computers....
UNITRON (GERMANY) 2200
This is a German clone of the Apple IIe. The keyboard of the UNITRON 2200 has built in macros, Applesoft commands and DOS commands. Very handy when doing basic programming. The only drawback is that the macro-key is the same key that changes from uppercase to lowercase and is also used when performing a reset. This results in constantly changing to lowercase when not wanting to. There are also two keys to make your own macros for the numeric keys. The drive ...
NEC  PC 9801 F
The PC-9801 was a very popular PC in Japan. PC-9801's design was very similar to IBM-PC, but was slightly extended. VRAM (Video RAM) is strongly extended from original IBM-PC, enabling it to display kanji characters without bitmap memory (as ASCII characters). But I/O systems, Interrupt systems are almost the same. There were in fact three models : F1, F2 and F3. Whereas F1 & F2 models have only 128k RAM, the F3 had 256 kb RAM and 10 Mb hard-disk built-in. More info anyone ? ________ ...
TANDY RADIO SHACK  1000
The Tandy 1000 was a line of IBM PC compatible computers made during the 1980ĺs by the American Tandy Corporation for sale in their chain of Radio Shack electronics stores in Canada and the USA. The Tandy 1000 would be the successor to their influential TRS-80 line of computers, the Tandy 1000 would eventually replace the COCO line of 8 bit computers as well when Tandy decided to prematurely end tha...

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...
