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

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

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...

SANCO  TPC-8300
The Sanco TPC-8300 was made in Japan by Alps, the company that also made the famous mini 4-colour plotter-printer one found connected to numerous home computers and professionnal devices. Alps probably took part in the design of the Sharp PC-1500. The appearence of the TPC-8300 was thus close to the PC-1500's although all the features of the computer were laid down by the French Sanco company. In spite of a 2-line display the computer had no success in Fren...
APPLE  APPLE III
The Apple /// was designed to be a business machine. It was partly compatible with the Apple II (thanks to a few options in the operating system). It used a powerful memory management system and worked under SOS (Sophisticated Operating System) which was a great, device -independent, operating system. This OS was the "ancestor" of ProDOS (the "professional" Apple operating system) and some parts of this system were used later in the
DAVID COMPUTER  PROFI 203

PANASONIC FS A1F
The Panasonic FS-A1F ia basicaly a FS-A1 (MSX2 system) with a built-in 3.5" floppy disk drive mounted on the front of the case, below the keyboard. There is DESKPAC software built-in which starts automatically when the system is booted. It offers several interesting utilities : world time clock, chronometer, alarm, calculator, calendar and diary. From here you can also choose to go directly to MSX Basic v2.0. Concerning audio and music, the FS A1 is equiped...
ATARI  Video Pinball (Model C-380)
In 1977, a new type of ball and paddle system was launched: Video Pinball. This game also existed in the arcade under the same name, hence the home versions sold by Atari (Video Pinball, model C-380) and Sears (Pinball Breakaway, model 99713). There even was a japanese version, the Epoch TV Block. These systems were designed around a more advanced chip than the PONG-in-a-chip devices, possibly a microcontroller (beli...
SHARP  X1 Turbo Z III
The X1 Turbo Z III is the successor of the X1 Turbo Z and ZII. The 8bit CPU (Z80) has reached its limits here. Like the X1 Turbo Z II, the Z III is VCCI compliant (electromagnetic emissions control) and has 128 KB RAM as standard, but does not have any remote connector for data recorder. Otherwise it is identical to the Z II. The most famous and strong point of X1 series is the Programmable Charactor Generator(PCG). The languages available were Hu-basic ...
ALTOS COMPUTER SYSTEMS Serie 5
The Serie 5 was a CP/M based multi-user system. It could support from 1 to 3 users. It had a 5 MB Winchester hard-drive and could be upgraded with a 10 MB hard-drive (for the Serie 5D only). It could use CP/M, MP/M II or Oasis as its operating system. The serie 5 was quite similar to the Altos ACS-8000, but with 5.25'' disk drives instead of the 8'' floppies....
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...
ATARI  VCS 2600
A new generation of games was born in the summer of 1977, a new concept revolutionizing leisure will let small leading and foreseeing companies make billions of dollars. Although the Atari VCS is not the first video game console ever, it will become a star while beginning in November of 1977. Millions of young players will hold it as mankind’s best invention ever. The first console idea was developed in 1975 by Atari and Warner Bros, its parent company. Initially the console was set to c...
XEROX  860
This wonderful computer was mainly used as an advanced wordprocessing system, but it could do much more. The full-text monitor could display 70 lines of 102 characters. The text could be black on a white background, or the inverse. The Xerox 860 was equipped with one of the first WYSIWYG word processors: BravoX (later called "Xerox Document System Editor") which was originally developed for the 1972 Xerox Alto and became the predecessor of virtually all modern word processors...

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.
