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...
UNIVERSUM Multispiel 2006
Basic pong system based on the popular AY-3-8500 chipset from General Instruments....
TERTA TAP-34

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...

SONICO 406-6 (Color TV Sports Video Game)
A classic german pong system which uses the GI AY-3-8512 chip from General Instruments, thus playing the 4 basic pong games + 2 shooting games, all in color. This particular model (406-6) was made in Hong Kong and sold worldwide under many different brands, here Sonico in Germany. The two controllers are not hardwired to the system, but connected to the console via two connectors located on the front panel (small jacks). This means that when one of them died, it wasn't necessary to change the...
AMSTRAD  CPC 464
The Amstrad CPC 464 was one of the most successful computers in Europe. More than two million computers were sold. Despite its ordinary characteristics (like those of the Sinclair Spectrum and often less interesting than those of the others like the Commodore 64 or Atari XL/Xe series) or odd features (like video memory or strange floppy disk format), it was very popula...
SMT  Goupil 3
Like its little brothers Goupil and Goupil 2, the Goupil 3 is based on a back-plane architecture. You get the computer you want by adding different electronic boards. Thus Goupil 3 can be a tri-processor system: Motorola 6809 like its little brothers, Zilog Z80 for CP/M compatibility and Intel 8088 to match the emerging "IBM PC/MS-DOS" movement. The processors don't work simultaneously but can use a time sharing mechanism. Like the
SHARP  X68000 Super / Super HD
The X68000 Super is the successor of the X68000 Expert II and X68000 Pro II. The Sharp X68000 Super and the Super HD had both the same co-processor, an Intel based AMD clone Banchu Cammago 4007. The system a SCSI Hard-disk interface instead of the SASI....
MATSUSHITA  National JR 200
It is the successor of the JR 100. The JR-200 had good features compared to its japanese competitors : 8 colors, 2400 bauds tape speed and 3 voices synthesizer. But sadly there were no real graphic resolution, only a combination of semi-graphic characters. The Panasonic JR-200U is the same computer but aimed at the american and european market. Read its page for more information, and a complete history text....

Originally based in Oakland, CA, DMS was sold t...

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...
