YAMAHA  SX-100
The SX-100 is a MSX 1 computer with a minimal but beautiful case design. Contrary to most of other MSX computers, the single cartridge slot can be found on the right side of the unit. The SX-100 uses a Z80A compatible CPU from Sharp (LH0080A) and a Yamaha YM2220 VDP (Video Display Processor) compatible with the Texas Instruments TMS9918. This YM2220 as only used in the Sakhr AX-150, Victor HC-30 and Yamaha SX-100 MSX computers. The sound is handled by a Yamaha S3527 MSX-Engine, also called...
POLYMAX Maxxi
The Maxxi was one of the first Brazilian clones of the Apple II and Apple II+. It was manufactured in 1982 by Polymax, a subsidiary of Abicomp, which headquarters were located in Porto Alegre. Polymax also manufactured larger computers for commercial applications. It has a slightly different design than other Apple-compatibles, with a taller case that supposedly facilitated internal ventilation. Due to the success of Apple in the North American market, sev...
SYSDATA ELETRONICA JR
The Sysdata JR computer is a Brazilian clone of the Tandy TRS-80 Model 1. Within the white molded plastic case, is a single printed circuit board equipped with a Z80A 8-bit CPU cadenced at 1.78MHz. It can operate at 3.56MHz through an optional modification. The 12 KB ROM memory includes the OS and BASIC Level II interpreter. There is also a 2 KB EPROM (socketed) for additional chips. For example, it could be used for extension of the operating system and BA...
CDSE Apply 300
Very little is known about this very rare Brazilian computer. CDSE stands for Centre de Desenvolvimento de Sistemas Eletricos. The Apply 300 is a home computer aimed at computing initiation. As usual with most Brazilian computers, it must be a copy of a more famous computer... but which one ? The Apply 300 is powered by a Z80A CPU cadenced at 3.24 MHz. There seems to be 32 KB and a 48 KB models. There is a BASIC language bundled in the 8 KB ROM. Text resolution is 32 x 24, and graphical...
RCA System 00
The System 00 is an early computer constructed by Joseph Weisbecker around 1971-72, when he was working at RCA. His goal was to conceive an educational computer able to play games, so that children could easily experience and understand how a computer works. This idea later evolved in FRED systems, COSMAC computers and Studio II game system. All logic circuits in the System 00 utilize 7400...
BANDAI TV Jack 1000
The TV Jack 1000 was the first system from a line of consoles released by Bandai and quite popular in Japan in the late 70s. This particular model was released in Japan in 1977. The TV Jack 1000 offers 4 classic games of that era: Hockey/Football, Tennis, Squash and Practice. It is powered by a Texas Instruments TMS1955NL chip which is a clone of the famous AY-3-8500-1 from General Instruments. A color chip ( SN75499N) add colours to the display....
HINO ELECTRONICS CEFUCOM 21 / Multipurpose SLAP Computer
The CEFUCOM 21 is a very strange computer ! It was built around a Sanyo PHC-25 to be used as a computer-aided teaching and learning system (to learn English for example). A tape recorder is built-in the left side of the plastic case. The tape deck can read data on one channel and audio on the other. This feature is used by the system to output audio instructions at the same time as its loads data programs into the computer. The tape deck can also be used indep...
SANYO  PHC-20
The PHC-20 was released at the same time as the PHC-10 and PHC-25, in 1982. Sanyo wanted to offer a perfect line of products for computing initiation. These three models were supposed to be complementary. But despite high hopes, they just were flops and it's not clear if the PHC-20 was even really sold, as only one or two were found until today. Most pictures found on the net come from press articles from the 80s. PHC stands f...

These three models were supposed to be complementary. But despite high hopes, they just were flops and it's not clear if the PHC-10 was even really sold, as only one or two were found until today, excepts for press pictures from the 80s. PHC stands for "Personal Home Computer". The PHC-10 was the entry-level sys...
SHEEN Sheen 2001 Home Video Center
The Sheen 2001 is one of the many systems "software-compatible" with the Emerson Arcadia 2001. This family of consoles released around 1982, includes many sub-categories depending on the cosmectic plastic case used, the motherboards version and above all its cartridge slot type. That's why all these systems are "software" compatible, but not "cartridge" compatible. The Sheen 2001 Home Video Centre was marketed in Australia. The other systems using the sam...

DIGITUS DGT100 / DGT1000
Brazil produced several Tandy Model I and III clones. Among them, the DGT-100 and DGT-1000 which were manufactured by DIGITUS Ind. Com. Serv. de Eletr˘nica Ltda and sold only in Brazil. Although their cases looked like an Apple II, both models were compatible with the Tandy Model I and III and featured a Level II BASIC interpreter. The DGT-100 had a monochrome video output while the DGT-...
ACORN COMPUTER  BBC Master AIV
In 1986, the 900th Anniversary of the Norman Domesday Book, the BBC and the National Curriculum, amongst other UK bodies, endeavoured to produced a 20th Century equivalent. Recently the Domesday project has had renewed interest, as the sense of producing such an ambitious undertaking then storing the results on a strange, and now forgotten, format has been called into question many times since! For old-computers.com readers, the interesting bits are not terribly interesting - but ...
NATIONAL CF-3000
MSX 1 computer with 64 KB RAM, two cartridge slots and superimposition feature. The keyboard is separated from the main unit. At the right hand side of the main unit, there is enough room for an optional disk drive. The CF-3300 was a CF-3000 sold with this disk drive already mounted. The brazilian computer Gradiente Expert, is a clone of the National CF-3000....
MUSTANG 9016 Telespiel Computer
The Mustang 9016 is one of the few RCA Studio II clones. You sould read its entry for more info about the Mustang itself. The Mustang 9016 is thus a programmmable console which looks like a pong system, the most popular systems when the RCA Studio appeared. Like the Studio II, the Mustang 9016 seems to also have 5 built in games: Bowling, Freeway (car racing), Patterns, Doodles, and Math (any confirmation would be nice). The controllers are quit...
GRADIENTE Expert XP-800
The Gradiente Expert 1 is a Brazilian MSX 1 computer. It is composed of two parts: the main unit and the keyboard. Gradiente is a Brazilian consumer electronic products company. It is not suprising as the unit's design looks like a HI-FI system... Along with the HotBit, the Experts were the only MSX systems available in Brazil. The Expert XP-800 was in fact a clone of the National CF-3000. It is a quite complete
YENO DPC-64
This is a classic MSX 1 computer. It was also sold under the Daewoo brand. It's one of the few Korean MSX computers... It has 64kb RAM and 4 big blue cursor keys... Not much more to say !...
GENERAL HOME PRODUCTS (GHP) Wonder Wizard (model N░ 7702)
Here is an interesting deluxe PONG system: Wonder Wizard model 7702. It was sold by General Home Products (GHP) in 1976, and is basically a Magnavox Odyssey 300. As a matter of fact, Wonder Wizard systems were manufactued by Magnavox. Model 7702 contains the same circuit board than Odyssey 300, and the bottom part of its plastic case is identical to the one used for the first Odyssey system. As this system is same a...
SHARP  SM-B-80TE
the SM-B-80TE and the SM-B-80TC training boards seem to be the first computers made by Sharp having the general public in mind. At the time, a professional division of Sharp already sold a range of computers called Hayac. These boards, as well as the first MZ computer series were conceived by the Sharp parts division as a market test. The same board concept could be found in the USA since 1985 (MOS Kim 1, Intel SD...
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...

CASIO  FX-700P
As Ivan says, the interior of the MK-85 has nothing in common with the Casio, using the KA1013VM1 processor, one of a family that grew out of the original DEC LSI-11 cpu clone. The PDP roots ran deep: it can be programmed in the DEC assembly language MACRO-11. Using an N-Queens benchmark, BASIC 10m45s, fast mode BASIC 2m, assembly 1.22s, fast mode assembly 0.22s.

TANDY RADIO SHACK  Color Computer 3
Website link is for Tandy CCR (Cassette Recorder) information. Also, does anyone know if the CoCo3 video output can all be used at the same time? (for mirror display output, such as the RF coax output + RCA composite output, and maybe the RGB as well? )

ATT PC 6300
I was a third-party computer field service technician 1987-2002. The customer I serviced used AT$T 6300''s with an SNA card on IBM mainframe system. These were used as remote job entry stations attached to Printronix P600XQ line printers at 20 sites in New York City. The first time I opened the system case I was surprised to see that 120V power for the monitor was supplied through the DB9 connector on the monochrome video card, so servicing this model could be a shocking experience for the uninitiated technician! I recall we had to install a date patch for the AT$T operating system software to make it Y2K compliant.

This website really is ace. Recently came to own one of these machines. A fascinating piece of history. Quite practical as a distraction free writing machine. One query: Does anyone know which printers it is compatible with?

HUSKY COMPUTERS LIMITED HUSKY HUNTER
I worked at Husky 1984-5 as the first marketing manager. Then Husky was my first client when I set up my PR consultancy. I learnt so much in that year. That piranha tank! And they really were indestructible!
