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...

REGNECENTRALEN RC759 Piccoline
The Piccoline is a direct descendant of the Piccolo, and was launched in 1984. It was more or less strictly meant for Danish educational institutions such as schools, high schools and universities. It was used extensively for teaching basic programming skills, using the languages Comal 80 and Pascal. Thanks to Henrik Schmidt from Denmark for information and pictures....
OSBORNE CORP.  08
The Osborne 08 was launched in Germany by Osborne Computer Corp. GmbH. It was an AT compatible portable system weighting 9 Kg. Standard software included MS-DOS 3.2, keyboard driver and a RAM disc. Xenix was available as an option as well as an extension box with five 16-bit plug-in slots. Two version were available: the OCC-08-D with two 720 KB floppy disc drives, and the OCC-08-H with one floppy drive and one 20 MB hard disk. ...
THOMSON  MICROMEGA 32
The Micromega was built by Thomson (in France) and System Fortune Corp in Great Britain (see this entry for more info). Two other floppy drives can be connected and four hard disks (5, 10, or 20 MB). It can be used on a network with several users: 3 computers can be linked by one rs232 port. It ran under UNIX and an optional Z80 card was available, so it also could run under CP/M. _________ Grosminet (France) recalls: I ...
PALLADIUM Video-Computer-Game
The Palladium Video-Computer-Game is one of the many systems "software-compatible" with the Emerson Arcadia 2001. Though, the Emerson Arcadia 2001 is the most popular system of this console group, it was not necessarily at the origin of it. Things must be seen differently. Philips / Signetics developped a hardware platform to demonstrate the possibilities of their Signetics 2650 & 2636 chipsets. Somehow, this hardware was licenced (by Philips?) to many th...
CW/P Cortex
With a few modifications en route, the Cortex system was bought by the British company C/WP ("Computers and Word Processors") from Ontel in USA where it was called Amigo. Major modifications were both to hardware, including easy service access, and software, all designed to make this micro more friendly. CW/P aimed it firmly at the mainstream office Word Processor market. The Cortex was in three main units, the keyboard, disc drive and display which house...

Though, the Emerson Arcadia 2001 is the most popular system of this console group, it was not necessarily at the origin of it. Things must be seen differently. Philips / Signetics developped a hardware platform to demonstrate the possibilities of their Signetics 2650 & 2636 chipsets. Somehow, this hardware was licenced (by Philips?) to many third-companies...
KAYPRO 2000
After having produced several CP/M based computers, Kaypro released this stylish PC compatible portable. It had an innovative dark grey brushed aluminum case with beveled edges covered in ridged black rubber. When opened, it offered a detachable keyboard, a slimline 3.5" floppy disc drive and a first generation LCD screen with no backlite and limited contrast. The floppy drive front poped up to the right of the case to let the user insert disks. Two main options could be acquired separatly...
SONY  SMC 777 - 777C
This computer is the successor of the SMC 70. It is also capable of superimposition. The big blue pad on the right hand-side are the cursor keys. The difference between the SMC-777 and SMC-777c is about color features (hence the "C"). ...

GAMATIC 7600
I also have one of these but one of the main resistors has burnt-out (first resistor off the positive feed, after the large cap). Think the first value was brown but can''t make anything else out, if anyone could help I would be very grateful.

TIMEX / SINCLAIR 2068
It was my second computer. My first was a Timex 1000. I modified the Commadore''s BASIC so I could run it''s programs on the Timex 1000.

MULTITECH  MPF II
I just bought MPF-II in a good condition from internet auction. The computer and external keyboard work, connected from "Monitor" output to the flat TV.

I did not know about the existence of such a model until I saw it at auction. Is there any resource available where one can download any software, preferably as .WAV files for loading through the Cassette interface.

I have also 5 "official" cassettes with it: PYRAMID, MICRO-NURSE, SNAKE, BURN-OUT, BLITZ, but have zero knowledge are these tapes still readable.

CASIO  FP 6000
I recently *saved* a FP-6000 box and FP-6028 box from an e-waste skip at my place of work, no other items (yet), no keyboard or monitor. Does anyone have any documentation for this equipment?

Glendon, the technical manual warns about using telephone wiring. The wire is too thin. So build a cable with at least 28-gage wire, no more than 12 feet long.
