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...

COMMODORE  C64G
The last model of the C64 to be sold was the 64G. It had the original "breadbin" case, but the color was much lighter, pretty much the same as on the 64C model, to match the tastes of the moment. The keyboard could either be the original black model with graphical symbols on the front side of the keys or the cream colored c-model type with the symbols on top of the keys. It seems that Commodore just tried to use up all the parts that they had in stock which re...
NEC  PC-FX
With the innovative design and power of the PC-FX, the face of videogaming has changed. Sporting a 32-BIT V810 processor, millions of colors, and one of the highest quality FMV in any home video game system, the PC-FX is definitely the system to get your hands on for some great gaming excitement. It all started with the joint collaboration of NEC Home Electronics and Hudson Soft of Japan that spawned the PC-FX on December 23, 1994... The PC-FX is one of the most unique video game systems ...
ATARI  TT 030
The Atari TT was a kind of a super Atari STe. As the other Atari computers, it was very long awaited. It was presented as a competitor of the Macintosh and was one of the first to offer a huge graphic resolution (1280 x 960). The first TTs had a 16Mhz CPU. A small daugther card was supplied later to use a 32 MHz CPU, then all the TTs were shipped with a 32 MHz CPU. It had a lot of extension connectors (like VME, VGA or SCSI) ...
OSBORNE CORP.  08
The Osborne 08 was launched in Germany by Osborne Computer Corp. GmbH. It was an AT compatible portable system weighting 9 Kg. Standard software included MS-DOS 3.2, keyboard driver and a RAM disc. Xenix was available as an option as well as an extension box with five 16-bit plug-in slots. Two version were available: the OCC-08-D with two 720 KB floppy disc drives, and the OCC-08-H with one floppy drive and one 20 MB hard disk. ...
ATARI  ST BOOK
After the success of the Stacy, Atari presented a new portable computer: the ST Book. It was a rather nice toy: very light, impressive battery life, MIDI ports, battery-saved RAM, etc. The Hard Disk contains a small Null-Modem program to transfer files (very handy!). It has no internal floppy drive, the external floppy was a weird (and expensive!) unit that used the same interface as Atari's hard disks (ACSI). Despite its interesting characteristics, an...
EACA  VIDEO GENIE 1 / EG-3003
The Genie 1 was compatible with the Tandy TRS-80 Model I. A 5.25" floppy disk drive (100 KB, 40 tracks). However, 80 track double-sided drives could be used if the operating system supported it. Due to some poor design, only 3 drives could be used and the last drive had to be single-sided. In fact the limitations of the floppy disks depended on the controller. Some controllers were able to drive up to 4 double sided disks. There also was a 'doubler' device ava...
BASF 7100
The BASF 7000 systems are professional computers from Germany. There were several models in the 7000 serie. The model shown is a BASF 7120. The computer was based on a DigiLog (USA) Personal Computer (Microterm II Intelligent Terminal), which had an additional printer built in (the paper came out on the top), but was to faulty to be sold (power supply, monitor control, mechanical construction and more.). The operating system was an "Enhanced commercial BASIC" interpreter and/or an Assem...
HEWLETT PACKARD  HP-9830
The HP 9810, 9820 and 9830 were all announced simultaneously by HP in the December 1972 HP Journal. They were all four bit machines and all of them used a serial bus internally. The 9830 was by far the most capable machine of this group and ran what HP called BASIC Plus. In many ways, it was one of the first true "Personal Computers" ever marketed. The 9830 was also significantly more expandable than the 9810/9820, with five user-accessable ROM cartridge slots. The
THOMSON  MO5 E
The Thomson MO5E was first revealed at the "Hannover Messe" (Germany) in april 1985. It was a big suprise for the french press as no-one ever heard of this system before. The MO5E ("E" presumably for Exportation) was reserved for Germany and more generaly for foreign markets. Quite surprising when you know that while Thomson was selling this system to Germans and other countries, French could only buy the first version of the MO5 with rubber keys, external power s...

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.

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. $)
