   LATEST ADDITIONS
POLYMAX Maxxi
The Maxxi was one of the first Brazilian clones of the Apple II and Apple II+. It was manufactured in 1982 by Polymax, a subsidiary of Abicomp, which headquarters were located in Porto Alegre. Polymax also manufactured larger computers for commercial applications. It has a slightly different design than other Apple-compatibles, with a taller case that supposedly facilitated internal ventilation. Due to the success of Apple in the North American market, sev...
SYSDATA ELETRONICA JR
The Sysdata JR computer is a Brazilian clone of the Tandy TRS-80 Model 1. Within the white molded plastic case, is a single printed circuit board equipped with a Z80A 8-bit CPU cadenced at 1.78MHz. It can operate at 3.56MHz through an optional modification. The 12 KB ROM memory includes the OS and BASIC Level II interpreter. There is also a 2 KB EPROM (socketed) for additional chips. For example, it could be used for extension of the operating system and BA...
CDSE Apply 300
Very little is known about this very rare Brazilian computer. CDSE stands for Centre de Desenvolvimento de Sistemas Eletricos. The Apply 300 is a home computer aimed at computing initiation. As usual with most Brazilian computers, it must be a copy of a more famous computer... but which one ? The Apply 300 is powered by a Z80A CPU cadenced at 3.24 MHz. There seems to be 32 KB and a 48 KB models. There is a BASIC language bundled in the 8 KB ROM. Text resolution is 32 x 24, and graphical...
RCA System 00
The System 00 is an early computer constructed by Joseph Weisbecker around 1971-72, when he was working at RCA. His goal was to conceive an educational computer able to play games, so that children could easily experience and understand how a computer works. This idea later evolved in FRED systems, COSMAC computers and Studio II game system. All logic circuits in the System 00 utilize 7400...
BANDAI TV Jack 1000
The TV Jack 1000 was the first system from a line of consoles released by Bandai and quite popular in Japan in the late 70s. This particular model was released in Japan in 1977. The TV Jack 1000 offers 4 classic games of that era: Hockey/Football, Tennis, Squash and Practice. It is powered by a Texas Instruments TMS1955NL chip which is a clone of the famous AY-3-8500-1 from General Instruments. A color chip ( SN75499N) add colours to the display....
HINO ELECTRONICS CEFUCOM 21 / Multipurpose SLAP Computer
The CEFUCOM 21 is a very strange computer ! It was built around a Sanyo PHC-25 to be used as a computer-aided teaching and learning system (to learn English for example). A tape recorder is built-in the left side of the plastic case. The tape deck can read data on one channel and audio on the other. This feature is used by the system to output audio instructions at the same time as its loads data programs into the computer. The tape deck can also be used indep...
SANYO  PHC-20
The PHC-20 was released at the same time as the PHC-10 and PHC-25, in 1982. Sanyo wanted to offer a perfect line of products for computing initiation. These three models were supposed to be complementary. But despite high hopes, they just were flops and it's not clear if the PHC-20 was even really sold, as only one or two were found until today. Most pictures found on the net come from press articles from the 80s. PHC stands f...
SANYO  PHC-10
The PHC-10 was released at the same time as the PHC-20 and PHC-25, in 1982. Sanyo wanted to offer a perfect line of products for computing initiation. These three models were supposed to be complementary. But despite high hopes, they just were flops and it's not clear if the PHC-10 was even really sold, as only one or two were found until today, excepts for press pictures from the 80s. PHC stands for "Personal Home Computer". The PHC-10 was the entry-level sys...
SHEEN Sheen 2001 Home Video Center
The Sheen 2001 is one of the many systems "software-compatible" with the Emerson Arcadia 2001. This family of consoles released around 1982, includes many sub-categories depending on the cosmectic plastic case used, the motherboards version and above all its cartridge slot type. That's why all these systems are "software" compatible, but not "cartridge" compatible. The Sheen 2001 Home Video Centre was marketed in Australia. The other systems using the sam...
ORMATU ELECTRIC BV Video Spelcomputer 1001
The Ormatu Video Spelcomputer 1001 (product code SD-290) is exactly the same system as the ITMC SD-290 (see this entry for more info). This particular version was marketed by Ormatu in the Netherlands and in Finland (?)....

DATAMAN DESIGNS Menta
Designed by Barry Savage, the Menta looks like a Sinclair ZX-80 or ZX-81 clone, but it's not. It's rather a development tool and initiation machine based on a Z80A processor. The concept is to help you understand how a Z80A works. The system itself is very similar to a Sinclair ZX-80 with its flat membrane keyboard. But when you look closer, you notice that the keybord is not quite usual like a QWERTY one for example. It's an hexadecimal one with numbers from 0 to 9 and letters from A to F. A...
MITS  Altair 680
The Altair 680 appeared about one year after the successful Altair 8800 was launched. With this model, MITS attempted to offer a new system based on the well known Motorola 6800 processor and then cover a large market share in small computer business. The computer was available in kit or assembled form, It was smaller than the 8800 but kept the same design of front panel and switches. It featured 1 KB of RAM (4 times the 8800 RAM) and 1 KB of ROM with support f...
SONY  SMC 777 - 777C
This computer is the successor of the SMC 70. It is also capable of superimposition. The big blue pad on the right hand-side are the cursor keys. The difference between the SMC-777 and SMC-777c is about color features (hence the "C"). ...
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......
RADOFIN ELECTRONICS LIMITED AQUARIUS 2
The Mattel Aquarius II had exactly the same characteristics as its predecessor, the Mattel Aquarius. Its only enhancements were the RAM (20 KB instead of 4 KB) and the mechanical keyboard. In fact, the Aquarius II only had 4 KB of built-in RAM but was supplied with a 16 KB RAM cartridge extension. Another difference is that the Aquarius II came with Extended Basic built-in. Mattel gave up the computer market and sold all the rights and computer stocks to ...
PIZON BROS Visiomatic 101
One really nice and odd pong system. Designed by Alcatel, it was also sometimes distributed and sold under the Pizon Bros label. The system was sold in a brown suitcase so you could carry it easily and anywhere. In the upper part of the suitcase is stored the lightgun. The buttons are very original and very cool to press (hehe, you can't imagine that feeling...). You can use the magnets sold with the system to keep the score by placing them on the sides of the metallic panel where numbered sq...
R2E  Micral 8020 Series
This computer was basically the same as the Bull 80/22. However, the machine seems to have been designed by the team of R2E after the company was bought by Bull in 1978. It was first designed as an opened business system intended to be integrated into company networks. However, some time later, Bull got a significant part of the French educational market, so the R2E system was adapted to meet the Department of Education requirements and became the Bull 80/22....
CANON  CAT
In 1987 Canon USA Inc. released a new computer named the Canon Cat. This computer was targeted at low-level clerical workers such as secretaries. After six months on the market and with 20,000 units sold, Canon discontinued the Cat. The Cat featured an innovative text based user interface that did not rely upon a mouse, icons, or graphics. The key person behind the Cat was Jef Raskin, an eclectic gadgeteer, who began the design of the Cat during his work on the first Macintosh project at App...
ATARI  VCS 2600
A new generation of games was born in the summer of 1977, a new concept revolutionizing leisure will let small leading and foreseeing companies make billions of dollars. Although the Atari VCS is not the first video game console ever, it will become a star while beginning in November of 1977. Millions of young players will hold it as mankind’s best invention ever. The first console idea was developed in 1975 by Atari and Warner Bros, its parent company. Initially the console was set to c...
EXTENSIS  EX3000
The EX3000 Computer, a typical success(?) saga of the early personal computer days. The Extensis Corp. EX3000 computer pulled together four emerging technologies; multiprocessor supercomputers, 8 bit microprocessors, the S100 bus standard and multiprocessor, multitasking multiuser operating systems. The hardware of the EX3000 system consists of subsystems and boards. Three subsystems were provided : FOS100 > Floppy disk subsystem (from one to four MB) MTS100 > Multiple terminal system...

OLIVETTI  ETS 1010
Hello, just found your website while looking for something else. In the early 80s I was head of system-engineers for these productline at Olivetti main solution partner in Berlin (West). I have also been in Eatontown and was supporting the Syntrex products until late 90s. There was a deal with the japanese Konica-U-bix company which was selling the updated Syntrex products. OS: Syntrex Operating System (SOS) was based on Unix Berkeley Version. Monitor in Europe was white chars on black and black chars on white wich was a USP , cause it looks like "printed letters". Still have some documents and information on that. Lett me know what you like to know, or if you need pictures. Greetings across the big pond Joachim

VIDEO TECHNOLOGY  LASER 3000
I got one for Christmas 1984 that came with a floppy disk drive as well. It actually had 48K ram but if you bought the 16k expansion/emulator, that brought it up to 64k and allowed you to load prodos.
