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...

MATSUSHITA  National JR 300
The successor of the JR 200. Almost everything was changed, the computer has two CPUs to keep the compatibility with the previous models (JR-200). This machine has also a superimposition feature. In fact it seems to be a mix between a JR-200 and a Sharp X1 system... quite strange ! But apparently this model was never really marketed. A handheld model called JR 800 was launched few time later, but it was not compatible with t...
MITSUBISHI  Multi 16
Multi16 was Japanese first 16-bit personal computer. This machine is known as first Shift-JIS code machine. Shift-JIS code is Chineese character's code defined by Microsoft. It met great success and became Japanese standard. Multi-16 could be equipped with an optional hard disk unit. It was only 10 MBytes and costed over $4,000! Thanks to Nomura Hisayuki for this information ...
PHILIPS  Videopac C52
Magnavox (which merged with Philips in 1974) released the Odyssey² in 1978 to compete with brand new cartridge based video game systems like the Atari VCS, RCA Studio II or Fair-Child Electronics Channel-F. The Videopac C52 is the french version of the Magnavox Odyssey². It was sold by Philips and was only...
NEC  PC 6001
The NEC PC 6001 is the first member of the great NEC PC family. During the 80's and the beginning of the 90's, the big Japanese electronics companies launched several series of computers, they were very powerful and had great features (some of them were costly options or totally non-existent on European or American computers at the time), the FM series from Fujitsu, the JR series from Matsushita (Panasonic), the
ADDS Mentor 2000
There is almost no information available about this M2000 minicomputer. ADDS (Applied Digital Data Systems) was a subsidiary of NCR Corp. The ADDS Mentor 2000 is a serious multi-user business machine the size of a small refrigerator. This system runs the "PICK" operating system. If you ask knowlegable people what "PICK" is, some will say "Operating System" (OS), and the others will say "Database Management System" (DBMS). Both are correct, the PICK operating system is designed around a power...
JOSTYKIT MULTI-TV-GAME HF 344
One of the rare system from Danemark. This was sold as a do-it-yourself kit to solder. It came with a documentation on how to build it up. It's a very basic system which includes an AY-3-8500 GI chip but wich offers very few options (slow or fast and that's all !). It looks very nice with its sheet metal. One player uses the control knob inserted in the system case while the other player use a detachable paddle. The system is very small and can easily be carried away. There is no internal sp...
CONCEPT 2000 Spectrum 6
This one is from Australia but there are clone in nearly every country where pongs can be found. There is a nice rainbow label but the system is very sober with its metallic color. There are not a lot of buttons too and this is because the internal chip is a National-Seminconductor one that allows the games to be selected by pressing just one button. The two pads are detachable. Each one has got a button to choose between large or small bat size and to activate the reset option....
G.Z.E. UNIMOR Bosman 8
The Bosman 8, was made by "G.Z.E. Unimor" (Gdanskie Zaklady Elektroniczne Unimor) in Poland (Gdansk to be precise). It was released in 1987 as a system for schools and offices, but even CAD/CAM software was developed for this machine and later, as being too expensive (cost 1 300 000 zl) and extremely hard to get (apparently only 1000 models have been produced), Bosman 8 was used mainly as a terminal for automatized processes (designing printed boards). The main particularity of the Bos...
COMMODORE  SX/DX 64 - Executive computer
The SX/DX 64 is the "laptop version" (though hardly portable) of the C64. This computer has a built-in 5" color screen (just about enough for the eyes), a detachable keyboard with new functions, and one or two 5.25" floppy disk drives (the famous 1541), depending on the model. The DX-64 and the SX-100 (SX-64 with black & white monitor) were first announced in January 1983 but the SX-100 never made it to the shelves and was replaced by the SX-64 later that year....
PHILIPS  P2000 T/M
The P2000 desktop series was the first Philips attempt to penetrate the home computer market. It was released in March 1980 in two version, the P2000M and the P2000T. The main difference lied in the video interface. The T version, aimed at home and educational use, could be connected to either a standard TV set or a special RGB monitor. The M version, more professional, had an additional 80-column card allowing to connect a monochrome composite monitor. This version shipped with a monitor ca...

TANDY RADIO SHACK  1000 SX
The 1000SX was the first DOS computer I owned...in 1992, when I bought it used. It was underpowered compared to new machines on the market, but it still worked (though 16kb of the 640kb didn''t, down to 624).

With an external 20MB HDD, a 3.5" drive raided from a 1000HX (and an adapter) and a 14.4K modem, I was able to do my comp sci work and other from home. It was good enough for logging in to the college''s VAX via Kermit, later for using Lynx on the local Freenet. I wouldn''t be able to live with it today, but I''m glad I had it at the time.

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.

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?
