Microkey KFFT

The Primo computer series was manufactured by Microkey Kftt. (Kutatási Fejlesztési Termelési Társulás), and was originaly developed to be a school computer in Hungary.

The system was sold in various memory configurations:
A-32: 16K ROM 16K RAM
A-48: 16K ROM 32K RAM
A-64: 16K ROM 48K RAM
B-64: 16K ROM 48K RAM

Other differences were:
A type did not have built-in joystick and serial ports.
B type could works togewther with the Commodore VC1541 floppy drive unit (external software had to be load for this from tape).
B type also featured a full stroke keyboard (capacitive was not a perfect way for quick typing).

There was a colour prototype as well, called pro PRIMO.

Thanks to Viktor Varga for information and pictures.

Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).


I was an owner. The primo was a really good machine, but not for games. No colors, no professional Keyboard, but usable for working.

Looks more like a children''s toy computer than anything resembling an actual computing device. In fact, I can remember something like this that was available in stores in the 1980''s. Except the one I''m thinking of had a handle on it and ran on batteries.

Compared to the Commodore Vic-20 and Commodore 64 computers being made in the same year, this computer is just plain junk. Sorry.
