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

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...

EDUCATEL Microlab
The Educatel Microlab is training computer used to learn/teach how the 6809 processor works. It was conceived (?) and used by Educatel, a french correspondence school, for their private courses. For this reason, this computer is pretty rare nowadays. As it was designed to show the user how the microprocessor works, there are red light indicators monitoring the CPU activity and functions. It is also possible to "slow down" the system and follow step by step the instructions being processed. ...
FUJITSU  FM Towns
Very little is known about this Japanese system. Help welcome !! It apparently had some success in Japan, with great game conversions. Based on the IBM PC architecture, it had excellent sound and graphic features. It has the barebone of a classic IBM PC system but was conceived from the start as a real familial multimedia system. Graphic resolutions go from 360x240 to 640x480 with 256 colors simultaneously on screen from a color palette of 16.7 millions colors. Most of these graphic modes ...
MATRA MAX 90
Like the MAX 20, the MAX 90 was derived from the AX 25, a computer designed by Axel, a small and innovative French company. It was an almost PC-compatible system including some rare features at that time: 8 MHz 8088 processor, high resolution capability, and especially one or two 5.25" floppy disk drives of 2.7 MB capacity each. To our knowledge, it's the highest capacity ever seen for a 5.25" floppy drive unit. A few thousa...
ONTEL OP-1
About Ontel OP-1 systems and Ontel company, Bob Hanrahan sent us this testimony: Memories of Ontel, Woodbury NY I worked for Ontel Corporation from 1979 to 1982, designing various controller boards for their line of 8008/8080/8085 based computer terminals. The OP-1 computer family included their high end 64K DRAM system called the OP-1/64. The OP-1/64 had a 10 card backplane (similar to VME) allowing it to be configured as a terminal, wo...
ULTRASOUND Tele-Sports
This is exactly the same system as the Radofin Tele-Sports, but sold by Ultrasound in Germany. See the Radofin Tele-Sports entry for more info....
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...
SPECTRAVIDEO  SVI 738 - X'press
This computer was a MSX 1 computer equipped with V9938 Video chip, which was quite unusual. It was probably meant to become an MSX 2, thus first versions were prepared to hold a CLOCK-IC chip. Thanks to its V9938 it could display 80-column text. It was called SPECTRAVIDEO XPRESS because it was delivered with a bag to easily carry it around in. The XPRESS designation was also used in a MSX 2 and PC hybrid (X'PRESS 16, for 16-bit...
FUJITSU  FM Towns II EX
The Fujitsu FM TOWN II EX is the successor of the FM TOWN II which used an i386SX CPU instead of the i486 DX2. Even if it is fully compatible with all PC compatibles, it was primary designed to be used as a powerful game computer. It has the common characteristics with game consoles like enhanced sound, hardware sprites and scrolling and video modes : it has in fact four video modes : 640 x 480 (1 screen of 16.7 million colors), 512 x 384 (2 screens of 32768 c...
NATIONAL SEMICONDUCTOR Introkit
Launched in 1976, the Introkit appeared to be very popular. It was the first affordable all-in-one computer everyone could acquire to know a bit about computers. The basic version was really minimalist: one SC/MP (or "Scamp") microprocessor, one 512-byte ROM containing a monitor program and 256 bytes of RAM for user's programs. The system was designed to connect to a Teletype - the CPU had serial In and Out pins, but very few hobbyist could afford this massive and expensive equipment. N.S....
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 ?...

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.

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?
