BANDAI TV Jack 5000
The TV Jack 5000 from Bandai released in 1978 is one of the first cartridge based system from Japan. It's the equivalent of european and american systems like the Hanimex SD-050, Acetronic Color TV Game, Prinztronic Micro 5500, SHG Blackpoint, Binatone Cablestar, Radofin telesports, etc. There have been tons of systems like these. 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...

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...

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...

ELECTROMAGNETICA Jet
We have few information about this computer. The Jet was a Romanian Spectrum clone computer built in a telephone case! You can see the handset housing and the numeric keyboard replaced with black plastic masks. The keyboard was made of printed pieces of paper inserted in transparent key-caps. This system has been deeply modified by the user(s). Zeno Mateescu, who owned a JET, reports: The whole computer was more a HC-85 clone...
OKI  IF COM7
We have no information about this system, please help !...
HITACHI  H1 / H1E
This small MSX-1 computer is quite original. It is very compact and was marketed has a handheld computer ! Thus, there is a handle which is pulled out from the front of the machine. There are two cartridge ports and the power unit could be attached or not to the back of the system (see picture). Apparently the H1 had built-in graphic and music software, hence the graphic tablet available (see hardware section). There was also a smaller version called H1E which had only 16 kb of RAM....
HANIMEX  PENCIL II
This Australian computer was in fact built and conceived in Hong Kong by Soundic Electronics, which produced a lot of low-end products at that time. The high-resolution (256 x 192) can only be accessed with at least a 16k RAM extension. The Basic (SD-Basic 2.0) is supplied on a ROM cartridge, it allowed to display up to 32 sprites. The Pencil II also came with an interesting expansion cartridge. The regular cartridge port was the exact same size as a Colecovision cartridge,...

HEWLETT PACKARD  HP-9830
The HP 9810, 9820 and 9830 were all announced simultaneously by HP in the December 1972 HP Journal. They were all four bit machines and all of them used a serial bus internally. The 9830 was by far the most capable machine of this group and ran what HP called BASIC Plus. In many ways, it was one of the first true "Personal Computers" ever marketed. The 9830 was also significantly more expandable than the 9810/9820, with five user-accessable ROM cartridge slots. The
IMCE IMCE Junior
Well, we haven't got much information about this one. We just have an advertisement in a newspaper. It says it's a handheld Apple compatible. Well it seems quite large for a handheld. Under "operating system", there is: IMC version 5.1, APPLE DOS, PRODOS and CP/M 2.2 compatible, there is also MS-DOS 2.0 in option. Under "storage": 1 "slimsize" disk drive with controller, capacity of 143kb. That's all......
ATARI  ST BOOK
After the success of the Stacy, Atari presented a new portable computer: the ST Book. It was a rather nice toy: very light, impressive battery life, MIDI ports, battery-saved RAM, etc. The Hard Disk contains a small Null-Modem program to transfer files (very handy!). It has no internal floppy drive, the external floppy was a weird (and expensive!) unit that used the same interface as Atari's hard disks (ACSI). Despite its interesting characteristics, an...
ROBERTS Paddle IV
A classic pong from Roberts with four games (hence the name of the system) and detachables paddles. Apparently made in Japan. The two paddles can be attached to each side of the system, or taken apart. There are only equiped with a unique dial. The general cosmetic design of the Paddle IV looks like the Commodore 64 one. Round edges and beige/creamy color. The games selection is made with a knob... PROMOTIONAL CATCHERS: - Featuring 4 games with detachable...

TANDY RADIO SHACK  1000 SX
The 1000SX was the first DOS computer I owned...in 1992, when I bought it used. It was underpowered compared to new machines on the market, but it still worked (though 16kb of the 640kb didn''t, down to 624).

With an external 20MB HDD, a 3.5" drive raided from a 1000HX (and an adapter) and a 14.4K modem, I was able to do my comp sci work and other from home. It was good enough for logging in to the college''s VAX via Kermit, later for using Lynx on the local Freenet. I wouldn''t be able to live with it today, but I''m glad I had it at the time.

GAMATIC 7600
I also have one of these but one of the main resistors has burnt-out (first resistor off the positive feed, after the large cap). Think the first value was brown but can''t make anything else out, if anyone could help I would be very grateful.

TIMEX / SINCLAIR 2068
It was my second computer. My first was a Timex 1000. I modified the Commadore''s BASIC so I could run it''s programs on the Timex 1000.

MULTITECH  MPF II
I just bought MPF-II in a good condition from internet auction. The computer and external keyboard work, connected from "Monitor" output to the flat TV.

I did not know about the existence of such a model until I saw it at auction. Is there any resource available where one can download any software, preferably as .WAV files for loading through the Cassette interface.

I have also 5 "official" cassettes with it: PYRAMID, MICRO-NURSE, SNAKE, BURN-OUT, BLITZ, but have zero knowledge are these tapes still readable.
