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...

Between 1984 (in the U.S.) and 1986 (in Germany), Commodore International celebrated the 1,000,000 machines sold mark in these respective countries by issuing special "Gold" editions of the Commodore C64.

PROLOGICA CP-200
The CP-200 and CP-200S computers were Brazilian clones of the Sinclair ZX81. However, to compete with the original model and local ZX81 clones, CP-200 models featured several enhancements.

The auxiliary CPU ensures high speed execution of graphics, while the detachable ergonomic keyboard and coiled cable enhance ease of use. There was no difference between the 1200 and 1250 models except that they left the fac...

George Morrow, the Morrow Designs President, was one of the first engineers to design and market a memory board for the Altair computer. His company was first called "Morrow's Microstuff" and the cards were sold by mail order. Some time later, Morrow Designs began to design hard disks and computers. With this computer, G. Morrow tried to build a single-board Z-80 CP/M machine that looks like an IBM PC but is one-third as expens...
EPSON  PX 8 / HC-88 / Geneva

G.Z.E. UNIMOR Bosman 8
The Bosman 8, was made by "G.Z.E. Unimor" (Gdanskie Zaklady Elektroniczne Unimor) in Poland (Gdansk to be precise). It was released in 1987 as a system for schools and offices, but even CAD/CAM software was developed for this machine and later, as being too expensive (cost 1 300 000 zl) and extremely hard to get (apparently only 1000 models have been produced), Bosman 8 was used mainly as a terminal for automatized processes (designing printed boards). The main particularity of the Bos...

MICROKEY KFFT  PRIMO A-32
I was an owner. The primo was a really good machine, but not for games. No colors, no professional Keyboard, but usable for working.

COMPAQ Portable
My first computer was a Compaq "luggable." What I miss most about it is the keyboard, more specifically, the nature of the stroke. It is the only keyboard on which I could type at high speed, without fatigue and with minimal stroke errors. Now that I have arthritis in my fingers, I''d like to find a modern keyboard with the same type of "feel." Can anyone suggest something? It would have to be Apple OSx compatible. Thanks.
