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...

SORD  M 170
The M-170 computer was originaly sold as a home computer but, as it was a very reliable system, many companies used it as a small business system. It was derived from the M-100, M-110 home systems. Basic version was supplied with a Hitachi monitor, an external power supply unit and a cassette recorder (the M-170 could manage two tape recorders simultaneously). There was no programming langage built in the computer, only a monitor including 19 commands. One of them allowed the user to load the...
KAYPRO Kaypro 4
This is the Kaypro 4 released in 1984, usually refered as Kaypro 4/84, as opposed to the Kaypro IV released one year earlier, and refered as Kaypro IV '83. The main differences between the Kaypro 4 '84 and the Kaypro IV '83 were : - A faster CPU, Zilog Z80A running at 4Mhz, - A real time clock which can be used by programs (uses National MM58167), - A better built-in monitor resulting in a very sharp display. The character matrix has also evol...
SINCLAIR  ZX 80
After the modest but encouraging success of the MK-14 (initiation board with hexadecimal keyboard), Sinclair (at the time Sciences of Cambridge) decided to develop a slightly more advanced computer. The ZX-80 is regarded as a pioneer system in micro-computing as at the time the only available computers were kits for hobbyists like the MK-14 or more expensive systems intended for education or research such as the Tandy TRS-80 or the
MATRA HACHETTE  ALICE 90
The Matra Alice 90 is the successor of the unsuccessful Alice 32 and is 100% compatible with this computer. This computer was designed, like its predecessor, to be used as a "first contact" computer. Genlocking allowed the user to use the computer and watch TV simultaneously. The ROM contains a version of the world famous Microsoft BASIC, but this version of BASIC can't access to the highest graphic mode (320x250), it could be accessed from the built-in asse...
PANASONIC CF-2700
Apart from a nice metallic finish case, the same as Philips and Sony MSX machines, and an unusual arrows keypad, the Panasonic CF-2700 was a pure MSX 1 machine. It featured a dual cartridge slot but, oddly, no RGB video output, only composite and RF jacks. The CF-2700 was also sold under the brand National in some countries with 32 KB RAM instead of 64 for the Panasonic version....
SMT  Goupil 3
Like its little brothers Goupil and Goupil 2, the Goupil 3 is based on a back-plane architecture. You get the computer you want by adding different electronic boards. Thus Goupil 3 can be a tri-processor system: Motorola 6809 like its little brothers, Zilog Z80 for CP/M compatibility and Intel 8088 to match the emerging "IBM PC/MS-DOS" movement. The processors don't work simultaneously but can use a time sharing mechanism. Like the
CANON  CX-1 / BX-3
This business computer has a monitor and two 5.25" drives built-in. The drives had a door lock so the disk could not be removed while a file was open. The CX-1 uses MCX (Media for Canon X series) as its operating system, which is similar to CP/M. The character matrix consists of 5x7 dots for normal characters, and of 7x9 for semi-graphic characters. There was a graphic option in Japan (300 x 260), but it never became available in the US. The Canon BX-3 was the same machine except th...
PIZON BROS Visiomatic 101
One really nice and odd pong system. Designed by Alcatel, it was also sometimes distributed and sold under the Pizon Bros label. The system was sold in a brown suitcase so you could carry it easily and anywhere. In the upper part of the suitcase is stored the lightgun. The buttons are very original and very cool to press (hehe, you can't imagine that feeling...). You can use the magnets sold with the system to keep the score by placing them on the sides of the metallic panel where numbered sq...
FUJITSU  FM 11 AD
The FM-11 was announced as a higher-end model of the FM-8 in November 1982, simultaneously with the mass market FM-7 machine. The FM-11 series was intended to be used in offices. FM stands for "Fujitsu Micro". The FM-11AD was released as the same time as the FM-11EX and FM-11ST. The FM-11ST is a cut-down version of the FM-11AD: F-Basic built-in ROM and no floppy disk drives on standard model. Ja...
TALENT/TELEMATICA  TPC-310
Talent/Telematica was an electronic company of Argentina that manufactured three MSX models: - DPC-200 - MSX1 - CPC-300 - MSX2 with numeric keypad - TPC-310 - MSX2 All Talent models was based on Daewoo/Yeno MSX models. The DPC-200 and the TPC-310 used the same case, the CPC300 looked like the daewoo CPC300/IQ2000 (black case). The TPC-310 featured a "toolbox" in ROM (user could access it pressing CTRL-Shift keys) including a calculator...
