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...

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
ACORN COMPUTER  Archimedes A5000
The Acorn A5000 was an all new model of the Archimedes family replacing the A540. It had 4 slots like previous models but a larger wider case making it look like a workstation computer. It was built on the new fast ARM3 processor as used in the A4 laptop. VGA output and new extra screen modes were introduced as well using cheap standardised IDE hard disks. The keyboard was the quality 'Brisbane' model as used on the previous high end Acorns. (Or could 'Brisbane' be the codename for the A...
TOSHIBA  PASOPIA 7
This is the successor of the Pasopia 5. It has improved sound and graphics. A cool feature was it was sold with three interchangeable colored panels, so it was possible to change the color of your computer any time you liked. There were blue, red and black panels....
CONTINENTAL EDISON / SABA Ordinateur Video Jeu JO 1450 (JOPAC)
The Jopac JO 1450 is the same system as Brandt Electronique Ordinateur de Jeu JO7400, basically a Philips G7400 in a different case....
COMMODORE  CBM 80xx
The main improvement over the other PET / CBM computers is the 80-column display. The screen is 12'' large and the ROM version is 4.0. The CBM-80xx was often sold as a "bundle". It was made up of the computer (most often the CBM 8032, though other models were made), the 5.25" double disk drive CBM 8050 (500 KB, 77 tracks) and the bi-directional 132-columns, 160 CPS printer. The 8050 has a 6502 CPU, 4 KB of RAM and 12 KB of ROM (which contains the DOS). It was sold with Ozz, a Database, and a ...
SHARP  MZ 80C
The MZ-80c is based on the MZ-80K, but offers some enhancements to match the professional market of that time. The price was improved too ;-) It was the first MZ-80 computer to be delivered assembled as opposed to first MZ-80k which were sold as kits. The RAM size is now of 48 KB. The keyboard which was so strange on the MZ-80K because of its matrix organisation, has now a more common layout with a large spacebar key. The numeric keypad is separated. Anothe...
ACORN COMPUTER  Archimedes A4000
The Acorn A4000 was a slightly cheaper cut down A5000, with a shorter case, one expansion slot and an ARM250 processor. Curiously, the machine had its floppy and hard drive fixed to the chassis with a wire clip which meant these could be quickly replaced without tools, whereas replacing the hard disk on the A5000 was a more fiddly operation requiring the expansion slot plane and the whole chassis holding the drives to be removed. Many of the features (ARM...
BINATONE Colour TV Game 4 plus 2 (model n° 01 / 4850)
This pong is one of the many Binatone systems. As its name indicates, it offers 6 games : 4 pong games (squash, squash practise, football, tennis) and 2 shooting games (target, shooting). In order to understand how this system fits into the Binatone pong range, here is simplified list of the systems : TV Master MK IV TV Master 4 plus 2 TV Master MK 6 TV Master MK 8 TV Master MK 10 Colour TV Game Colour TV Game 4 plus 2 Colour TV Game MK 6 Colour TV Game MK 10 The TV master se...
ROWTRON Television Computer System
The Rowtron Television Computer System is another Interton VC-4000 "software compatible" system (saying "clone" would be misleading). That is to say that the internal specs are exactly the same and that games would run on both systems. The cartridge slots are however different in shape, so there is no way simply test that (with an emulator that would be easier). There are two controllers composed of a 12 keys keypad and an analog joystick. Interton VC-4000 com...
ACT ACT-800
The ACT 800 was the first machine sold by ACT company. It was in fact manufactured in the USA. The ACT-800 was built as an attempt to design a computer that would last 7 years without becoming obsolete. Why therefore the specifications were so dated from the start is mystery. The machine was clearly based on the Commodore PET line of computer which were very, very popular certainly in the UK - far more than the US registers. The ACT-800 was an 'all in one unit' but with an external 5.25'...

SCIENCE FAIR Microcomputer Trainer
Sam (UK), Interesting the way that you describe this trainer''s method of simulating a simple 4-bit microprocessor. I think this may be one of the simplest examples of what we call a bytecode interpreter. This is the technology that famous languages such as Smalltalk and Java are built on top of. $)

SINCLAIR  PC 200
I remember having this particular model of PC which a late friend purchased from a shop in Nottingham in 1990 and was in use until 1996 when it was taken over by multimedia systems, It was very heavy as I recall with the single disk drive and I always had to remember to remove the software program before $ing the disk to save the file I had created with the Mini Office 3 software. Mainly used the database / word / spreadsheet applications and data was stored on the 720 KB disks, later the 1.44 KB disks. I spent hours processing handwritten notes until the wee small hours monopolizing the PC. It was great fun to use with a Star LC20 LQ printer and I learned the various DOS commands to perform a variety of tasks including the commands for laying out the documents in Word Processor on this model of PC which was very new to me as I had never used a computer until then. Had to let the PC go to the Bletchley Park Museum as it was taking up space many years ago not so long after my friend/flatmate passed on. Was told by the guy from Bletchley Park that this model was a rare one, and for the American Market, which I did not know at the time when it was purchased. I still have the GW Basics book but not the DOS manual as that went with the PC when donated, along with the Mini Office Manual. The mouse that came with it I found years later and sold it on eBay for over £57.

EAGLE COMPUTERS INC. Spirit
I have an Eagle Spirit portable. It stopped working so I opened it up and looked it over thoroughly. I found a bad capacitor and disassembled the computer to get at the board with the capacitor. After replacing it, I find I don''t remember how and where the connectors go. It would help alot to have a picture of the orange connectors and green/white/black wire connector. Thanks
