To enhance my comment on 9th September 2010: This computer was used for training purposes in The Netherlands to educate young adults, (which already had a degree), with a special half-year course, for acquiring a job in the IT business. It was in the year 1985. I remember the operating system installed was CP/M and we programmed in the COBOL language.

RC700 simulator

Back in 1981, my school, Sofiendalskolen in Aalborg, had a few RC700 systems, and I used them for learning to program in Pascal and COMAL. While most of these were RC702 systems, we also had an RC701 system, which I believe is quite rare. It had an 8" floppy disk drive and used a TV monitor for display.

I have made a website with more information about the RC700 computer from Regnecentralen. The site has a simulator for the RC700, which you can download, or you can try the web-based version of the simulator. There is also a number of disk images with software for the RC700 which can be used with the simulator.

I am interested in finding more software for the RC700. If you have any software on 5 1/4" floppy disks (original or not) made for (or compatible with) the RC700, please let me know. I have made a PC that can be used for reading these and create .IMD disk image files.

This was my first computer experience. The Comal 80 book had a gold-colored cover. The computer was used for our school''s administration and had two 8" floppy drives. (No 5" drive) I believe the floppy could hold 1Mb of data, ~900Kb formatted.

We have made the website dedicated to the RC759 PICCOLINE and RC750 Partner (maybe PICCOLO in the future). On this website, one can download manuals and disk images, and an emulator for the system is also available. New information is frequently added.

We are very interested in getting more software and user manuals. If you have anything you think could contribute to the site, please let us know - we have the equipment to read floppy disks compatible with those systems, and try to rescue as much software as possible. See the Software section on the website for more information.

I learned the basics of my current IT job on this machine. You could install the spreadsheet Multiplan, the predecessor of Excel from Microsoft and use Wordstar as a text application. Also the CRT was with amber or green characters. When reading the floppy it made a loud ticking noise.
