The first computer I got to play with in 1983 when doing high-school in the Netherlands. From learning to beginnings of BASIC to doing poke and peeks into video RAM to get some graphics moving...

In the details of the NewBrain it says that the machine has
a "calculatortype" keyboard. That is nonsense !!!!
Measure the keydistances !! They are the same as the "big"
keyboards sold today !!
Only the surface of the keys were a bit smaller.
A BIG advantage !!! You would not hit 2, 3, or 4 keys at the
same time !! I have never seen such a beautyfull and perfect
working keyboard !!

I still have LOADS of New Brain gear. It was a truely fantastic system. I have the Serial I/O V24 adapter - as far as I know never actually put into production! 8 V24 ports, parallel printer and parallel I/O. Another very special item is the Expansion Interface Module that included multiple parallel ports as well as analogue I/O and a very crude sound device port. I modified New Brains to use 3.5" fdd''s and added the missing ports to the EIM that were never installed in production. A Paris-based micro club added hi-res colour graphics and a standard bus-based expansion system.
A great system!

All, I've been fascinated by this machine, so, basing on the informations found on the dutch user group I've extended the Z88DK compiler to support it.
If you are willing to port small C programs to the Grundy Newbrain, give it a try: http://www.z88dk.org

I have a Grundy new brain model AD but I don't have the wire that connects it to the tape recorder so I have to write programs down on paper it would be good if someone would post on this message board where to get one.

Has anyone got a New Brain they would be willing to sell me. My father used to work for New Brain in Cambridge but a few years ago he threw away his New Brain by mistake - terrible I know but these things do happen. I would love to own a New Brain for old times sake. Can anyone help please, regards Martin Bensley, Hamburg Germany firstname.lastname@example.org

I work with a newbrain computer (model AD) to command a stepper (micromanipulator). I have a mechanical problem with the stepper. No manufacturer name is written on the stepper. The only thing written is "west Germany". Does anybody know who should I contact regarding my stepper problem? Does Grundy, the company behind newbrain still exist?

I've got one.
During the years I used I was the president in Spain of a Users club, we edited 2 numbers of our journal. I have some 5 1/4 disk and K7 with software and many documentation manuals

Very nice micro. Does anyone knows if the 2MegaBytes memory expansion was ever released?

I've got one. Some guys gave it to me without understanding what exactly it is. Unfortunately i have no any documentation about it. The set contains the pc, 3 or 4 connecting cables, transformator. It seems that works.
If someone has some (electronic) documentation or instructions and feels to be a very kind person, please, send me something.
