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.

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…











ITMC Vido Ordinateur MPT-05
The Vido Ordinateur MPT-05 is one of the many systems “software-compatible” with the Interton VC-4000 or the Radofin 1292 to name a few.

Though, the Interton VC-4000 is the maybe most popular system of this console group, it was not necessarily at the origin of it. Things must be seen differently. Philips / Signetics developped a hardware platform to demonstrate the possibilities of their Signetics 2650 & 2636 chipsets. Somehow, this hardware was licence…







TERAK CORPORATION 8510 Data Processor
The Terak 8510 is a complete stand-alone micro-computer based on DEC’s LSI-11 chipset (16-bit !), in other words, it si a PDP-11 compatible. It was one of the first high-end microcomputers and among the first desktop personal computers to offer a bitmap graphics display.

It was capable of running a stripped version of UNIX version 6. It was the first personal machine on which the UCSD p-System was widely used. Various universities in the USA used it in the late 1970s through mid-1980s to teac…







TOSHIBA  Visicom 100
This beautiful but obscure Japanese system was released in january 1978. It’s basically a clone of the RCA Studio gaming system, one of the first videogame console of all time (released in january 1977).

Made by Toshiba, this beauty was also based on the RCA 1802 micro-processor, and its video counterpart, the CDP 1861. However the main difference with the Studio II is that the Visicom 100 offers colour display thanks additional hardware.

Another nice difference, is that unlike the Studio …

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…







FUJITSU  Micro 16s
The Micro 16s was designed to be a powerful package of hardware and software in a professional business system. It offered a unique architectural design for the time: interchangeable microprocessors and thus operating systems. In fact most commonly used processors were Intel 8086 and Zilog Z80.

One or two processor boards could be plugged into the Micro 16s and either one could be in control of the bus, the memory, etc.
Fujitsu also planned to launch Motorola 68000, Intel 80286 and Zilog Z80…







APPLE  APPLE IIc Plus
The Apple IIc Plus unit was a direct response to the Laser 128EX/2.

Apple retrofitted the IIc design to try to compete with Video Technology’s high-speed Apple II clone. The retrofitting is evident in the design of the motherboard. The motherboard runs at 1Mhz, unlike the Laser 128EX/2. In order to run its programs faster, Apple used a 4Mhz 65C02 with 8k of high speed SRAM cache and licensed the accelerator design from Zip Tec…







ATARI  4160 Ste
The Atari 4160 STe is an Atari 520 STe with 4 MB of RAM. It was never marketed and was built by Atari for the developpers. It had a special version of TOS, version 1.6 (the Atari ST Operating System), with less bugs than in the final version !…







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…







GRADIENTE Expert Plus
The Gradiente Expert Plus is a Brazilian MSX 1 computer. It is composed of two parts: the main unit and the keyboard. Gradiente is a Brazilian consumer electronic products company. It is not suprising as the unit’s design looks like a HI-FI system… Along with the Hot-Bit, the Experts were the only MSX systems available in Brazil. The first model (Expert XP-800) was in fact a clone of the National CF-3000.

It is a quite complete MS…







TANDY RADIO SHACK  TRS-80 Model 12
The Tandy TRS-80 Model 12 was a business system intended to replace the Model II which was widely used as an accounting and management system by numerous small companies.

Unlike Model II, it was a single board system with a white case instead of the typical dark grey one of previous TRS-80 models. It could be expanded by adding an optional card cage in which six expansion cards could be inserted, for example the monochrome high resolution card. However it was …







FUJITSU  FM New 7
The FM-NEW7 as its name suggests is the successor of the FM-7. It uses high-integration memory and gate array LSI to reduce price while maintaining FM-7 functionality. But on the paper, there is no real difference between the FM-NEW7 and the “old” FM-7.

The system is powered by two Motorola 68B09 micro-processors. One is the main CPU and the other handles video and inputs/outputs. There is a (optional?) Kanji (Chinese characters) ROM offering: 453 JIS non-kanj…

LEANORD  Silex
Little is known about this computer. Help welcomed ! Silex means flint in french, a stone mainly used in prehistoric times as tools and weapons.

The SILEX is a professional computer released in 1979 by the french company Leanord. It was conceived from a modified Apple II board.

It has a professional keyboard with function keypad and numeric keypad. The display is built-in the system. It is monochrome but has graphic capabilities (280 x 192) and can display 40 x 24 characters (80 x 24 in op…
