Up to 20 Tina or David computers can link to Goliath as a distributed data processing system. For ...
LOGICAL MACHINE CORPORATION (LOMAC) Adam
The Adam was the first computer released by Logical Machine Corporation (LOMAC) in 1975. In 1978 they also produced Tina which stands for "TINy Adam". In 1983 Logical released the David, and the L-XT in 1983. 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 mythic...
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...

COMPUTER DEVICES INCORPORATED  DOT
The DOT was a portable IBM PC compatible computer. It was the last portable computer developed by Computer Devices Incorporated (CDI) back in 1981-1983. It followed the example of the Osborne systems, its main competitors. But while most other transportable systems were powered by 8-bit microprocessors, the DOT used a "powerful" 16-bit Intel 8088. It has a wide built-in 5 x 9" green monochrome display which can display up to 1056 x 254 pixels or 132 x 25 characters. There are 256 characters ...
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 ?...
ATARI  1450 XLD
The Atari 1450 XLD has the same characteristics as the Atari 1400 XL. Like the 1400 XL, it has a built-in modem (Bell 103 compatible, 300 baud) and the speech synthesiser chip (SC-02). Contrary to the other Atari, it uses a parallel disk drive controller (a much faster arrangement) instead of the SIO interface. Apparently The 1450 was not released because they were having problems getting the parallel disk drive controller to work properly....
COMPAQ Portable
Announced November 1982, the unit was actually shipped in January of 1983 (300 of them). This was arguably the system that destroyed IBM's monopoly on the PC market and created the situation we see today. It WAS the first compatible system that was LEGALLY made, though Columbia first copied the IBM BIOS and later paid the fatal price. The system's BIOS was developed from scratch by using a team of 18 persons (only one guy was "dirty" and he was not allowed to do any part of the code and coul...
SHARP  SM-B-80TC
In 1978, the Sharp parts division, in charge of semiconductor sales, became one of the first second source distributor of Zilog CIE. In order to promote the LH-0080 (Sharp Z80) and associated chips, the division thought up and sold two training cards based on the LH-0080 processor and the LH-0081 PIO chip. These two cards were the SM-B-80TE and the SM-B-80TC. The major difference between these two models is the keyboard that is here separated from ...
THOMSON  JV1T
Even Thomson made pong systems! Actually, this system is an Interton 2400 pong system rebadged by Thomson for the french market. Read this entry for more info. Thomson also released another pong system, the JV-1002....
OSM COMPUTER CORPORATION Zeus
OSM Computer Corporation, based in Santa Clara California, produced several multi-user CP/M computers called Zeus. The first Zeus system was released in 1981. It looks like a mini-computer with a fairly big case that can house mutimple user boards. Each user has a dedicated Z80A-base-single board that fits into the system mainframe. The modular, stackable system can expand up to 64 users. To add a user, you need a dumb terminal and a user "microcomputer" module added into the mainframe. ...
HONEYWELL H316 - Kitchen computer
And now something for the ladies... Torin Darkflight kindly sent us following information and picture about this rather weird machine: "This odd-looking and almost laughable computer was released by Honeywell under the official name H316 Pedestal Model, but was featured on the cover of a Nieman-Marcus catalog under its more commonly-known name, the "Kitchen Computer". The Kitchen Computer is most likely where the classic recipe storage cliché originated, as this wa...
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...
APPLE  APPLE II
Apple II was the successor to the Apple 1 on which it was largely based. It was the very first commercial success of the Apple Computer Company. Because Steve Wozniak wanted to demonstrate his Breakout game with the new Apple II, he decided to add colour, sound and minimum paddle support to the Apple 1's heir. The Apple II came with 4 KB RAM, but it was possible to add 4 KB or 16 KB RAM chips. Thus, the system could have memory in the following sizes: 4K, 8K...
