LOGICAL MACHINE CORPORATION (LOMAC) Tina
The Adam was the first computer released by Logical Machine Corporation (LOMAC) in 1976. In 1978 they produced Tina which stands for "TINy Adam". It seems to have the same specs as David but with two 8'' floppy disk drives. There was also the Goliath, a data storage server with 5MB hard drive. Goliath could be connected to up to 20 Davids or Tinas. David and Goliath names makes a clear reference to the mythical story found in the biblical Book of S...
LOGICAL MACHINE CORPORATION (LOMAC) L-XT
The L-XT was the last computer released by Logical Business Machines, after the Adam, the David, the Tina and the Goliath in 1982. It was announced at the 1983 COMDEX Fall in Las Vegas, and commercially available in March 1984. The L-XT uses a 16-bit Intel 8088 CPU with 192KB RAM, and equipped with a 5.25'' floppy drive unit (320 KB capacity) and a 10 MB hard disk (upgradable to 60 MB)...
LOGICAL MACHINE CORPORATION (LOMAC) David
The David is not the first computer released by Logical Business Machines. In 1974, LOMAC (Logical Machine Corporation) released the Adam. Some times later they also produced Tina (for TINy Adam). There was also the Goliath, a data storage server with 5MB hard drive. Goliath could be connected to up to 20 Davids or Tinas. David and Goliath names makes a clear reference to the mythical story found in the biblical Book of Samuel. The David is powered by a 16-bit Intel 8086 CPU w...
GESPAC Gescomp 720 / 730
GESPAC SA was a Swiss company who designed the G-64/96 Bus in 1979. This interface bus concept provides a simple way to interface microprocessor modules with memory and peripheral modules on a parallel bus. The G-64/96 Bus uses a simple, yet modern and powerful interface scheme which allows a higher level of functionality from the single height Eurocard form factor. The low overhead of the G-64/96 Bus interface greatly eases the design of custom boards by the User. This is why, even many year...
WELECT  W86
The W86 is a french computer released in 1983 by Welect. It's the second computer released by Welect after the W80.2. The W86 is powered by an Intel 8086 (hence its name) to catch up with the IBM PC compatible trend of the moment and is thus able to run MS-DOS. But the W86 is also equipped with a Z80A to also be CP/M compatible. It's thus an hybrid machine typical of the mid-80s when the professional industry was moving from CP/M to MS-DOS. There is 128 KB...
SMOKE SIGNAL CHIEFTAIN COMPUTERS The Chieftain 9822
In 1978, Smoke Signal Chieftain Computers (SSCC) released their first computer: The Chieftain, followed in 1980 by the Chieftain Business System, an update to the original Chieftain. At the start of 1982, the company introduced the Chieftain 9822, an update to the Business System featuring the same processor and static RAM options, as well as the same nine-slot bus equipped with the first two Chieftains. The system could be equipped with either two 8-inch or two 5.25-inch floppy drives and...
BRIDGE COMPUTER COMPANY Bridge 3C
The Bridge 3C seems to be a rebranded InterSystems DPS-1 computer sold with Televideo terminals. Apparently the Bridge 3C was delivered with the following software: CP/M 2.2, BMATE word processor, R80 RATFOR preprocessor, FORTRAN compiler, Enhanced FORTRAN, Pascal-Z and C compiler. The following extensions/options were advertised for the Bridge 3C: - FPP: system calendar, 3 interval timers, one additional serial port, and a 9511 floating point processor wi...
OSM COMPUTER CORPORATION Zeus 3X
OSM Computer Corporation, based in Santa Clara California, produced several multi-user CP/M computers called Zeus. The Zeus 3X was released in 1983, and is a natural follow-up of previous systems: Zeus, Zeus II, Zeus 3. The Zeus 3X was available as the same time as the Zeus 4, in which it differs in some features (more users, more memory, tape drive, real time clock, etc.) making it more suited for larger companies. The OSM Z...

PANASONIC FH 2000
The FH-2000 was the successor of the Panasonic HHC. Like its predecessor, it was a portable machine intended to run professional custom applications. The computer was solidly built, featuring an IBM/PC-like keyboard and an 8-line LCD display located into the cover. The basic software was comprised of an 8086 BIOS and a BASIC interpreter close to the Microsoft/GW-Basic, stored in one of the four ROM sockets. These sockets provided up to 512 KB of memory area...
MAGNAVOX Odyssey 2000
The Odyssey 2000, released in 1977, is almost an Odyssey 300 with one more game (practice, for one player). In fact, and as opposed to previous Magnavox Odyssey systems (except the Odyssey 300), the Odyssey 2000 uses the famous AY-3-8500 chipset from General Instruments. This chip offers 4 black & white pong games: Tennis, Hockey, squash (here called Smash) and Practice (squash for 1 player)....
INTEL SDK-85
Each time Intel launched a new microprocessor, they provided simultaneously a System Development Kit (SDK) allowing computer company ingineers as well as university students to introduce them to the new processor concepts and features. The SDK-85 was a complete 8085A (5 for 'first 5 Volt microprocessor') microcomputer system on a single board including ROM and RAM memory, a 24 key hexadecimal keyboard, a 6 digit LED display, I/O connections and an expansion area allowing...
GORENJE Geti-3220
Nice pong system from Slovenia. Little is known about it. If offers six classic games (4 pong games + 2 shooting games) and thus must be certainly powered by a AY-3-8500 chipset from General Instruments, like mots other pong systems of that time. All functions are chosen through nice white, green and orange push buttons. Paddle are controlled with two detachable controllers or sliders built-in the console itself. Indeed, the system pictured here use controllers whereas the system shown on ...
SEGA Genesis 3
Manufactured by Majesco under license by Sega, the Genesis 3 was a budget release of the Genesis hardware. Appearing in the United States in 1998, it was much smaller than previous versions and shipped with the six button controller included. However, the Genesis 3 lacked the expansion port of the older models making it incompatible with the Sega CD add-ons. It was also incompatible with the 32X. A number of games were also re-released by Majesco, who ...
ULTRASOUND TV-9010
This is a German pong system. All the texts are written in German. It's a handheld pong type: one of the paddles includes the systems hardware and is used by the first player. The second paddle is connected to the first one and is used by the second player. It could easily be disconnected and was very small (1/3 of the main parts size). As it was not hardwired, it was easily lost. This pong system has got an interesting feature: an On/Off switch for sound that allowed the players to turn o...
PEL VARAZDIN Galeb
Galeb (English = Seagull) was an 8-bit computer developed by PEL Varaždin. It was largely inspired by the Compukit UK 101, Ohio Scientific Superboard and Superboard II computers that appeared in the U.K. and U.S.A. in 1979. A grand total of 250 were produced by the end of the summer of 1984, before being replaced by Orao. (source Wikipedia) Ro...
ATARI  520 ST / ST+ / STM
The 520 ST featured same hardware basis and same amount of memory as the 260 ST. The main difference between them was the built-in ROM TOS operating system and GEM Graphics Interface. In fact, the Atari 520ST originaly came with the OS on floppy as the OS was not completly finished. Very shortly afterward they came with the OS on 6 ROM chips (TOS 1.0). It was first sold in Germany where it met a great success then released in the United States about six m...
ACORN COMPUTER  ABC 210 / Cambridge Workstation
The Acorn Cambridge Workstation was the only model from the announced, marketed but unreleased ABC (Acorn Business Computer) line, first claimed to be available in October 1984. The ABCs were a range of machines using an integrated monitor, disk drive, PSU and BBC B+ 64K motherboard with slight modifications, originally featuring CPUs from straight 6502 terminals to an 80286 based system. Differences between the released Cambridge Workstation and the 32016 co-p...
RAIR MICROCOMPUTER Business Computer
The RAIR Business Computer is an obscure system since nearly nothing can be found on the net about it (apart from here :-)) The Business Computer is a multipost system. It can control/serve up to 4 attached terminal stations via RS422 connectors. Its main particularity is to mix two technologies: 8-bit with its Intel 8085 CPU and 16-bit with its Intel 8088 CPU. Thus it can run CP/M, MP/M and PC-DOS software with no problem (according to the advert). For mass storage, the system is equip...

COMPUPRO System 816
I have a complete CompuPro 8/16 system that I would like to sell. I do not know if this is the proper forum for this. This belonged to my father and I am in the process of settling his estate. I have posted pictures of the system components. If anyone has any interest or advice on how to proceed, please feel free to contact me.

OSBORNE CORP.  OSBORNE 1
Had an Osborne 1a in my AF recruiting office in 1982. It was the ss/sd drive, but there had been an after market supplier of a DD board. Found it in the Osborne mag, but they were $ping the line. I bought 3 for $25 ea, (they offered to sell me the entire stock plus jigs, but passed on it) and sold the other two to members of the QCOUG for enough to cover mine. You had to solder leads directly to chips on the main board. Actually have the VHS tape for dealers display, somewhere.

NEC  PC 9801 E
They could use both. Later ones came with the 5.25", but could use the PC-8882A 8" drive. Even had an option board for MS-DOS /1.2 Windows, if I remember correctly.
