Olivetti
Prodest PC 128

The Prodest PC-128 was a rebadged and slightly redesigned version of the French Thomson MO6

Apart from case design touching up, technical features was the same as the MO6.

This machine seems having been sold in very small quantity in Italy.

Hi! This was my first PC as well when I was a kid.
I learned coding BASIC from its HUGE manual when I was 8y/o... Here is the link for revival!

As I lived in Italy, this was my first computer too.
I actually wanted to buy a Commodore 64, but in 1987 there were rumours that Commodore would discontinue it, so I bought the Olivetti. I remember I used my own money saved from tips, and I was only 13 !
I was initially dissappointed because the games were not a big deal. However I learnt how to program in Basic with this machine, and that helped me through all my career. I remember I wrote a cool program to plot mathematical funtions for the "maturitá" exams (A-levels / baccalaureat).
I stilll have it somewhere in the garage in Italy...
