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...

MULTITECH  MPF-1 Plus
The MPF 1P (MicroProfessor 1 Plus), is an improved version of the MPF 1. Like its brother, it is a learning tool for use in the teaching of microprocessor, microelectronics, and control technology. It has a better keyboard. Instead of the hexadecimal keyboard of the MPF 1, this one is a real "QWERTY" one, with CONTROL and SHIFT keys. There is even a RESET key at the top right (red key). The VFD display is also larger. It can now display 20 characters instea...
BINATONE TV Master 4 plus 2 (model n° 01 / 4869)
This pong is one of the many Binatone systems. As its name indicates, it offers 6 games : 4 pong games (squash, squash practice, 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...
APPLE  MACINTOSH SE 30
The Macintosh SE/30 was the successor to the Apple Macintosh SE and the Macintosh Plus. It ran under Mac OS 6.0.3 or A/UX (Apple’s Unix variant). Apple had been naming all computers using the 68030 processers with an "x", such as the IIx and IIcx. When it came time to put the 68030 processor into the SE series, they prudently decided that calling it the Macintosh "SEx" wasn't the best marketing idea, so they settled on "SE 30"....
BULL  MICRAL 80/22
In 1973, the french mini-computer company R2E build the first European mini-computer and called it "MICRAL". In 1979, CII-Honeywell-Bull (now Bull), bought this company and presented this Micral 80-22 under their logo. This was a very expensive french computer conceived for the French education market. The price was set ridiculously high since the company knew that the french government would be able to pay such a price ! The basic operating system of this machine was Pr...
VICTOR HC-6
The HC-6 is the second MSX computer from Victor/JVC (after the HC-5). It is in fact essentially a rebranded Yamaha YIS-503 or CX5 computers without SFG music module and MIDI capabilities. The main feature of the HC-6 was the possibility to add a superimposing adapter module (HC-A602S) which can be used to display computer generated graphics on top of videos ! Look at the adverts for examples. This machine was only sold in the Japanese market....
SINCLAIR  ZX SPECTRUM 128
The Spectrum 128 (code named Derby) is the successor of the Spectrum +. It was made just before Amstrad bought the right to use the Sinclair name in computer products. So it can be regarded as the last "real Sinclair Spectrum". The 128 is the first real evolution of the old Spectrum. It has a lot of new features: 128kb RAM, a new sound chip (Yamaha AY-3-8912), RS232/Midi and video RGB outputs. The Spectrum displays a menu wh...
ATARI  5200 SuperSystem
The Atari 5200 SuperSystem, released in late 1982 for $270 (USA), was the direct follow-up to the highly successful Atari 2600 (VCS), and predecessor of the Atari 7800 ProSystem. Atari chose to design the 5200 around technology used in their popular Atari 400/800 8-bit computer line, but was not directly compatible, unlike Atari’s much later pastel-colored...
MICRODIGITAL TK-83
The TK83 followed the TK82. It was a close copy of the ZX81 but offered some enhanced features: 2 KB of RAM expandable up to 64 KB, and a joystick interface. The tape speed could be either 300 or 4200 baud per second. The machine shipped with a beige or silver case, the same size as the ZX-81's. Thanks to Franco Girardi for the picture. ...
TOSHIBA  HX-52
Very little information about this HX-52 which was probably an extended version of the HX-51, but we don't know the technical differences between the two versions. It was a standard MSX 1 machine which held a particular IC, also designed by Toshiba, and called T7937. Inside this unique chip one found a Z80 compatible CPU, a TMS-9918A Video Display Processor, and an AY-3-8910A sound generator. The HX-52 also offered three video outputs - RGB scart socke...
IMSAI  8080
After seeing the instant success of the MITS ALTAIR 8800 computer, the first "home computer" ever made, others soon tried their luck in this new business space. One of the first to do so was Bill Millard who founded IMS Associates. The computer they designed, the IMSAI 8080, was very similar to the Altair 8800 and was designed to run the same software. However, it was a much better design, with a higher specification power supply, an anodized aluminum chassis, ...
