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...

EAGLE COMPUTERS INC. Spirit
This transportable computer was compatible with the IBM PC-XT. It had a built-in 9" monochrome monitor, one or two 5"1/4 disk-drive (320k) and a 10 Mb hard-disk for the "1 disk model". This hard-disk was half thinner than "classic" hard-disks of that time (Slimline technology). It also had a color graphic board but the built-in monitor was monochrome (no color model was available). It was not completely useless as it enabled to display 8 shades of green... Hopefully it was possible to connec...

VOLTMACE Database Games-Computer
This obscure videogame system was made by Voltmace, a British company based in Baldock. Voltmace came into being in 1977 as a pure sales/marketing organisation - it offered sales facilities to companies who had a product to sell. They were contracted by one of the early pionneers in the video field to handle their product. Shortly after this, Voltmace came into contact with Teleng who were putting out one of the first programmable machines and there ensued a short but profitable association d...
COMPUCOLOR CORPORATION 8001 / 8051
The Compucolor 1 was the first world integrated system which included a graphic colour display.

SINCLAIR  ZX SPECTRUM+
In 1984, the Spectrum is already 2 years old and starts to look obsolete when compared to its competitors and the Commodore 64 in particular. That's why Sinclair launches a new-look version of the Spectrum : the Spectrum+ was born. In fact, it does not bring anything more apart from some cosmetic changes. Concerning the keyboard, the rubber keys are replaced with a better keyboard directly inspired by the keyboard of the QL, launched the same year. Though the keys are made of plastic this tim...

HEWLETT PACKARD  HP-87
The local public safety/911 dispatch center back in the ''80s in my town (Bismarck, ND) had an HP-87 at their dispatch console that was used to control the outdoor warning sirens (for tornado alerts and such) across town. It was loaded with a custom software package for such, IIRC.

I have a Franklin 1200 and it can put out color its not a monochrome system (the 1000 might have been) although the monitor that came with it is. It however has no graphical capability of its own.
