BANDAI Arcadia
The Bandai Arcadia, is the same system as the Emerson Arcadia 2001, but sold in Japan. Please see this entry for more detailed informations. The Arcadia 2001 clones includes : Advision Home Arcade (France), Bandai Arcadia (Japan), GiG Electronics Leonardo (Italy), Hanimex HMG-2650, Leisure-Dynamics Leisure-Vision, Intercord XL 2000 system, Eduscho / Tchibo Tele-Fever, etc...

BANDAI TV Jack 5000
The TV Jack 5000 from Bandai released in 1978 is one of the first cartridge based system from Japan. It's the equivalent of european and american systems like the Hanimex SD-050, Acetronic Color TV Game, Prinztronic Micro 5500, SHG Blackpoint, Binatone Cablestar, Radofin telesports, etc. There have been tons of systems like these. The TV Jack 5000, like all these systems, use cartridges based on General Instruments chipsets which offers different games on each chip. That's why all these sy...
OLIVETTI  A5
Olivetti introduced a mainframe about 1960 which was called ELEA, then in 1965 the Programma 101 - which was probably the world's first real desktop computer. Then a little later they introduced the Audiotronic range of "office computers". The first was the A770, which was replaced by the A7. The A5 was the desktop version. The Olivetti Audit 5 or A5 was largely an electro mechanical computer. It printed via a golf ball typewritter mechanism at the astonishing speed of 16 character per second...
TRIUMPH ADLER  TA-1600
The TA 1600 system was introduced in 1983 at the CeBIT (which was only a part of the "Hannover-Messe" by that time). TA showed a few sample applications and the 1600 family in general. Triumph Adler's hardware included also the 1600/20-3 which was supplied with a permanent-swap-HDD-unit. This unit had a memory/storage capacity of 2 x 8 MB (Winchester technology). Triumph Adler said the system (the 1600) will fit the demand of medium-sized businesses, due to the facts that these companies w...
MIDWICH Microcontroller
Called the Midwich Microcontroller, this British computer was developped to provide a small desktop micro capable of running other equipment throug a variety of interface cards. In 1979 an Italian IC manufacturer designed and began to sell a single board micro system that could be expanded to a full system with a VDU, discs, etc. Called the Nanocomputer, it was manufactured by SGS Ates and one of the distributors in the UK was Midwich. The Nano was somewhat expensive and suffered from a numbe...
RADIONIC Model R1001
This is an extremly rare TRS-80 Model 1 clone, based on an other clone: The Komtek 1 (from Germany). It's equiped with a Level II basic and powered by a Zilog Z80 cpu. _________ Contributors : Incog...
BASF 7100
The BASF 7000 systems are professional computers from Germany. They seem to be based on the Microterm II Intelligent Terminal by Digi-Log Systems, Inc. There were several models in the 7000 serie....
PERTEC PCC 2000
PCC 2000 is a professional computer released in 1978. It was designed in 1978 by Pertec, the company which merged with MITS by the end of 1976. The PCC is conceived as a monobloc machine, where the display and two 8" floppy disk drives are built-in the main case. The mechanical keyboard offers separated numeric and editing keypads. The system is powered by an Intel 8085 microprocessor and offers 64 KB RAM. The whole thing was apparently delivered with an extended Basic language, which has...
UNIVERSUM Multispiel 2006
Basic pong system based on the popular AY-3-8500 chipset from General Instruments....
TERTA TAP-34
TAP 34 is a self design of Terta company from Hungary. Primarily it was designed as a terminal for big computer systems but it was also able to process data alone. The main integrated circuits were assembled in the USSR and in Hungary by Tungsram, but several parts were imported from other countries. The built-in monitor was a DME-28 monochrome CRT made by Orion. This company was famous for its televisions in Hungary and the other KGST countries. The floppy drive attached to the compute...

NINTENDO Racing 112 (model CTG-CR112)
This original system from Nintendo offers car racing games. To move your car you use the steering wheel and gear shifter. This must have been impressive in 1978. Arcade game at home! Two detachable paddles (dials) can also be used for two-players games, each player control his car with the dial, acceleration being automatic in two players games. Several switches on the control panel are used to select games and difficulty settings. Overall, 112 game combinations are possible, hence the name ...
ATARI  520 ST / ST+ / STM
The 520 ST featured same hardware basis and same amount of memory as the 260 ST. The main difference between them was the built-in ROM TOS operating system and GEM Graphics Interface. In fact, the Atari 520ST originaly came with the OS on floppy as the OS was not completly finished. Very shortly afterward they came with the OS on 6 ROM chips (TOS 1.0). It was first sold in Germany where it met a great success then released in the United States about six m...
VIDEO TECHNOLOGY  LASER 310
The Laser 310 is an improved version of the Laser 200/210. Both computers are compatible with each other, for both software and hardware. Basically, it has an enhanced keyboard and more memory. This model was also sold worldwide, the most popular version being the VZ-300 from Dick Smith Electronics....
COLECO  ADAM
The ADAM is available in two models, the complete system and Expansion Module #3. When the memory console of Expansion Module #3 is connected to the ColecoVision, the two models are essentially identical in function. The unit pictured here is the expasion module #3 (it is shorter than the complete unit). The expansion module #3 uses part of the Colecovision hardware, thus the memory unit doesn't have any cartridge slot, and isn't delivered with any controllers nor TV switch box. The whole sys...
SANYO  Wavy 70FD
This is a MSX 2+ computer. It'a kind of Wavy 35 with a built-in 3.5" disk-drive (720 KB). No great enhancements over the MSX 2, the MSX 2+ has 19268 colors instead of 512, some more graphic / KANJI resolutions and the FM-PAC cartridge is included, providing 9 channels of FM sound without drums or 6 channels FM sound with 5 FM drums. The Sanyo Wavy 70FD features the Rensha Turbo, which is a bu...
SHARP  X1 (CZ-800C)
This is the first member of the X1 family. Difficult to locate this computer in the Sharp family, it has some characteristics of the MZ 2000 but is not compatible with it. The X1 family had a very great success in Japan, and the last models were very powerful. Go figure why Sharp didn't market these computers outside Japan… The most famous and strong feature of the X1 series is its Programmable Charactor Generator(PCG). Tape Basic and Disk Basic were availa...
COMPUTER & ELECTRONIC SYSTEM  ATHENA
The Athena used the NSC 800 microprocessor which was a low consumption version of the Zilog Z80. The computer had a battery which allowed it to be used for two hours or six hours in "awake" state. Apparently it was the first "clamshell" laptop computer to be exhibited, but never went into production. It was designed by David Mitchell....
SANYO  MPC 100
The MPC 100 is a classic MSX 1 computer with 64 KB RAM. Its main particularity is to be delivered with a light pen. There is of course a connector to use it, and more surprising a hole is placed at the top right part of the case to store the light pen when not in use! However, some versions had the light pen hole but were delivered without neither the pen nor its connector. The MPC-100, apart from its memory size, is the same computer as the
HANIMEX  HMG 2650
One of the many "Arcadia 2001 clone" systems. This one was marketed in Australia, Germany and some other European countries (?). See Emerson Arcadia 2001 for more info....
ORIC NOVA 64
The NOVA 64 seems to be a legal copy of the Oric Atmos for the Yugoslavian market. Here is what the Oric FAQ by Jim Groom says : "A Yugoslavian company (believed to be Avtotehna, based in Ljubljana) obtained a licence to make 5000 machines. Machines were made, but whether they were under license or not is not known in any detail. It is thought that they assembled parts shipped from the UK. I have a contact in Yugoslavia who says there were several in his village and about 30 in a schoo...

PRINZTRONIC Videosport 600
Also the prinztronic videosports 800 has 6 games, not 8. Find some photos on the web to confirm it.

I have found on the web another console with the same shape but 10 games. I do not know the name and haven''t found any reference about it

SORD  M23 Mark III
SORD was imported into the UK by Exleigh Business Machines (EBM) of Penzance. A small number of machines were re-exported to Cyprus. There is further information on SORD, mainly M5, on this page http://www.binarydinosaurs.co.uk/Museum/Sord/index.php

G.Z.E. UNIMOR Bosman 8
Bosman has two 3" floppies, not 3.5" - it was the same floppy drive as used in Timex FDD 3000. Itself it has no graphics card - it uses terminal (ANG-2001 - text only, ANG-3001 - text and graphics). It has 512KB of RAM, paged as 60k blocks (not 64 - 60!) - top 4KB was reserved by OS, RAM over first 64K was used as internal disk.

Monitor connector is DB9, but it is used for video signal AND power drawed from power supply in monitor.

I heard there was a version without floppy - for network usage? I can''t confirm - I haven''t seen any.
