The TV Jack 5000, like all these systems, use cartridges based on General Instruments chipsets which offers different games on each chip. That's why all these sy...
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...
RADIONIC Model R1001

PERTEC PCC 2000
PCC 2000 is a professional computer released in 1978. It was designed in 1978 by Pertec, the company which merged with MITS by the end of 1976. The PCC is conceived as a monobloc machine, where the display and two 8" floppy disk drives are built-in the main case. The mechanical keyboard offers separated numeric and editing keypads. The system is powered by an Intel 8085 microprocessor and offers 64 KB RAM. The whole thing was apparently delivered with an extended Basic language, which has...

Basic pong system based on the popular AY-3-8500 chipset from General Instruments....
TERTA TAP-34
TAP 34 is a self design of Terta company from Hungary. Primarily it was designed as a terminal for big computer systems but it was also able to process data alone. The main integrated circuits were assembled in the USSR and in Hungary by Tungsram, but several parts were imported from other countries. The built-in monitor was a DME-28 monochrome CRT made by Orion. This company was famous for its televisions in Hungary and the other KGST countries. The floppy drive attached to the compute...

EAGLE COMPUTERS INC. Eagle PC
This was an IBM PC compatible system. It could even boot the IBM PC system disks. Its overall design was smarter than the traditional IBM PC. The keyboard could be stored in a dedicated space under the main unit. The Eagle PC was first designed as a terminal to the Eagle 2000 System which used the 8086 chip as a client. However when IBM released the PC eagle turned it into a low end PC to compete. It worked without any fan and was thus quite silent, which was rare for an PC compatible syst...
SCHMID TVG 2000
One of the many "Arcadia 2001 clone" systems. This one was marketed in Germany. See Emerson Arcadia 2001 for more info. ...
NCR  PC4
When NCR discontinued the Decision Mate V, they released the PC4. This was more or less a 8088 based IBM PC/XT clone. It came in six variations: monochrome or colour screen, one or two 5.25" DS-DD floppy disk drive or a half-height 10 MB hard disk in place of the second floppy drive. It did support the IBM ISA bus, but also had an NCR proprietary expansion bus for memory and some adapters to integrate with other NCR proprietary banking and retail products. ...
APPLE  MACINTOSH II
The Apple Macintosh II was launched in 1987 at the same time as the Macintosh SE. It was considered "revolutionary" because, for the first time, the Macintosh was expandable thanks to its internal slots and had colours (the previous Macintoshes all had monochrome displays). The Mac II also marked Apple's entry into the realm of serious computing. It used a more classic keyboard (which looked like a PC keyboard) and proprietary RGB monitor (see 'Read more' sec...
LOBO DRIVES INTERNATIONAL MAX-80
Max-80 has been, along with the LNW-80, one of the two major Tandy TRS-80 Mod. III compatible computers. It could run LDOS TRS-80 software three times faster. Nevertheless numerous internal differences made it incompatible as far as hardware was concerned: serial and parallel ports, disk interface and no tape connector. The system also ran CP/M operating system. the early versions were shipped with 2.2 version, next ones wit...
TRANSAM Tuscan S-100
Transam was based in London and have moved on from their original business as a manufacturer of cheap hobby-type boards to computers design in 1982. The main unit of the Tuscan computer had a ten-slot S-100 backplane and integral single or dual floppy disk drives. The system came with a CPU board based around the Z80 processor, a video board with composite and UHF TV video outputs, and a memory board holding 8 KB of RAM and 8 KB of Monitor ROM. Several additional board could expand the sy...
ROBERTS Rally IV
A classic pong from Roberts with four games (hence the name of the system) and detachables paddles. Made in Japan. The difference between the Rally IV and Paddle IV are unclear. Can anyone help ? Both systems seem identical despite a different cosmetic design : same chipset, same games, same controls, switches and buttons, etc... The console is plastic with nice woodgrain accents. A knob allows you to select from the four games. There are two buttons, one...
CASIO  FP 200
Excellent laptop computer for its time, a precursor !...
SHARP  MZ 700
The Sharp MZ 700 series replaced the aging MZ 80 (MZ 80K, MZ 80A and MZ 80B) series. Moreover, the MZ 700 was compatible with the MZ 80K and MZ 80A. The MZ 700 series is composed of four machines: the first three models were launched in 1983 (November 1982 in Japan) and the last one was launched in late 1985 (in fact, this one is the "ancestor" of the MZ 800): - the MZ 711 was the "nak...
DATA SOFT  PCS 80
The Data Soft PCS 80 is the french version of the IMSAI PCS 80. See this entry for more info....

TRIUMPH ADLER  ALPHATRONIC PC
My very first programming job, when I was 19, was programming accounts receivable, sales lead tracking, and creating some spreadsheets on a Royal Alphatronic PC in 1986, in Peabody at the New England Home Planning Center, a place that sold modular homes. 33 years later and I''m still hacking. All the coding I did on this thing was in Beginners All Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code. I forget the name of the software, but PeachTree rings a bell. Would love to find one on eBay for a trip down memory lane.

TANDY RADIO SHACK  1000
My 3rd computer was a Tandy 1000SX, I stated with a Tandy Color Mini MC-10 and then a TRS-80 4P "portable". I have my original MC-10 and a 4P I was given a few years ago. Recently added a Tandy 1000 HD to the collection. The HD was the original 1000 with a factory Hard Drive.

IBM  PS/2 Model 25
To Anthony B. in Wisconsin. I have an old IBM PS/2 model 25 with learning games, including "your" MATH BLASTER "Rocket Launcher." If you contact me at bdaniels30@excite.com I''ll provide more details and possibly help you obtain a PS/2. Do you also remember Word Munchers, Trash Zapper, and Number Recycler? Those were the days!

GAMATIC 7600
I have just recently cleaned it up and put it back in operation, very nice machine, robust and reliable.
My contribution is a VIDEO OUT RCA jack in order to be plugged to a monitor or a modern TV:

TANDY RADIO SHACK  1000 TX
My first computer was a Tandy 1000TX in 1989. No HDD, only 640K RAM and a single 1.4mb FDD. I ran everything from a MS-DOS 4.2 DOS prompt. About a year later, I upgraded the RAM to 768K and added a second FDD. This cost me about $2500. I gave that computer away in 1994. I wish I had of kept it...
