Amstrad PCW8512 (UK 1985) Kindly donated by Per-Olof Orrhede

The PCW8512 was primary sold as a word processor. But it is really a general personal computer with a word processor program, LocoScript, bundled. The computer is running CP/M Plus operating system and BASIC and LOGO computer languages are provided. The processor is a Z80 CPU running at 3.4Mhz. The Amstrad had two (2x180K) disc drives and use a special diskette format as many computers did in the 80:s. There is also one model of this computer called PCW8256 with just one disk drive and less memory (256 k). The computer and power supply was built inside the CRT-screen. The screen is a mono display with green characters and capable of displaying graphics at 720 x 256 pixels resolution. A matrix printer connected with a flat cable on the back of the screen is also included in the package. Click picture for a big picture!

Amstrad PCW8512 (UK 1985)

Amstrad PPC640 (UK 1988)

Amstrad tried to make a real low cost portable PC. This is a really funny shaped PC. It can be folded together and carried around with the handle on the short end. The screen is a 9" flip up LCD with poor contrast and probably the reason this computer never made any big success. It is powered by 10 standard D-cells or a external power supply. One 720 K 3½" floppy drive on the right. Standard full size PC-keyboard. External monitor could be connected. There was also a PPC512 model with a lighter color case, otherwise same as 640.

Amstrad NC100 (UK 1992) Kindly donated by Magnus Wassborg

The Amstrad NC100 was an A4-size, portable Z80-based computer, released by Amstrad in 1992. It featured 64 KB of RAM, the Protext word processor, various organiser-like facilities (diary, address book and time manager), a simple calculator, and a version of BBC BASIC.

Its screen was small, eight rows by 80 columns, and not backlit, but this let the NC100 run for up to 20 hours on four standard AA cell batteries. There was an RS232 serial port, a parallel port for connecting a printer, and a PC card socket, by means of which the computer's memory could be expanded up to 1 MB.

Apple Computers
Apple II europlus (1978 - 1983)

This is really a classic 8 bit computer using a MOS Technology 6502 running at 1 MHz. Apple II was based on Wozniak's Apple I design, but with several additions. First of all a very nice beige plastic case. It also had the possibility to control colors (280x192 6 colors or 40x48 16 colors) and sound (built in speaker). This version has two external 5¼ floppy disk drives. The europlus version had a PAL video modulator for the European market.

Apple IIe (1983 - 1993) This computer kindly donated by Anders Wahlbom
The Apple IIe was the third model in the Apple II series of personal computers, produced by Apple Computer. The "e" in the name stood for "enhanced", referring to the fact that several popular features were now built-in that were only available as third party upgrades and add-ons in earlier models. It also improved upon expandability and added a few new features, which all combined, made it very attractive to first-time computer shoppers as a general purpose machine. The Apple IIe has the distinction of being the longest-lived computer in Apple's history, having been manufactured and sold for nearly 11 years with relatively few changes. For this reason, it is the most commonly recognized model in the Apple II line.

This computer kindly donated by Anders Wahlbom

Apple III (1980)

This machine was meant to take over after Apple II but was not very successful. Still using the MOS 6502 but at 1.4 MHz speed. This computer had a 5¼ floppy disk drive built in the case but most people want two drives, one for program and one for data, so an external drive was also available. There was also an 5 MB hard drive available. The computer has four expansion slots, two serial ports and an external disk drive port.

Macintosh SE FDHD (1988)
The SE model was introduced to the market in 1987 later followed by this FDHD model with Apple's new 1.4 MB high density floppy disk drive. 20 M hard disk standard. 1 Mb RAM Motorola 68000 processor at 7.8336 MHz. Built-in 9-inch, 512 by 342-pixel bitmapped B/W display. The only real change from the Mac SE to the Mac SE FDHD was the 1.44MB floppy drives. Otherwise everything else is the same. This provided 4.2MB of floppy-based storage! Plus the drives could read/write MS-DOS (IBM) floppies!

Macintosh Classic (1990)

The Classic model was a "back-to-basics" attempt from Apple in October 1990. It should be considered as a competitor to all inexpensive PC compatible systems hitting the market at that time. It is a low cost concept still using the 68000 at 8 MHz, 1 M RAM, same 9 inch screen as the SE model and a 40 M hard drive. It came with the system 6.0.7 OS. Introduced as the first sub-$1,000 Macintosh in October 1990, the basic Classic came with 1 MB of RAM, a SuperDrive, and space to mount an internal SCSI hard drive. Highslide JS

Macintosh Performa 6200 (1995)

The Performa 6200 is a "Power-PC" from Apple introduced in July 1995. There was a lot of 62XX models different equipped. Inside is a PowerPC 603 running at 75 MHz and 8 to 16 MB of RAM expandable to 64MB using 80ns 72-pin SIMM chips and 1 MB VRAM. It has a 1 Gb hard drive, a 1.44 MB high density floppy and a 4x CD-ROM drive. Ports: an ADB port, 1 SCSI port, a modem and printer port, and microphone and speaker ports. The display is a 15" color Apple MultiScan. It could display either 16-bit color at 640x480 or 8-bit color at 832x624. It came with Mac OS 7.5 preinstalled.

Back in 1995, the Mac Performa was near the top of the line with a 75mhz processor and 16 MB of RAM. The processor speed and RAM almost seems comical compared to modern standards.

iBook Clamshell (2000) Kindly donated by Bengt and Cilgia

The iBook was a line of laptop computers sold by Apple Computer from 1999 to 2006. The line targeted entry level, consumer and education markets, with lower specifications and prices than the PowerBook, Apple's higher-end line of laptop computers.

Three distinct designs of the iBook were introduced during its lifetime. The first, known as the "Clamshell", was influenced by the design of Apple's popular iMac line at the time. It was a significant departure from previous portable computer designs due to its shape, bright colors, incorporation of a handle into the casing, lack of a hinged cover over the external ports, and built-in wireless networking.

My iBook is a Clamshell Indigo model M6411 introduced to the market in September 2000. It includes a 366 MHz PowerPC processor, 10 GB ATA HDD and a DC-ROM drive. It also have a USB, FireWire, 10/100 Ethernet and a 56k v.90 modem.

This computer, sometimes named PET 4032, is the follower to the classic PET 2001 (sadly missing in my collection). Commodore changed the PET name to CBM (Commodore Business Machines). Commodore apparently had legal issues with the "PET" abbreviation. This machine has like the predecessor a MOS 6502 running at 1 MHz, 32K RAM memory and BASIC in ROM. The model number 4032 referes to 40 characters wide display and 32 k RAM. The 12" monocrome screen is integrated with the computer. This computer was normally sold together with the CBM 8050 dual drive floppy disk.

In October 1988, the Compaq SLT/286 debuted. The first computer to use VGA (640-by-480-resolution) graphics, it revolutionized portable displays. The SLT/286 weighed 14 pounds and had a 20MB hard drive, a 12MHz 80C286 processor, a new low-power chip that is among the faster 80286 microprocessors, and it is certainly capable of handling most applications. And it has a detachable keyboard, another first among laptops. Operating system supplied at the time was MS/DOS 2.11.

I'm happy to be able to include a tablet PC running Microsoft Windows for PEN Computers version 1.0. It is the Compaq Concerto introduced in 1992. It used a special pen placed in the compartment on top of the screen. The pen is powered by three small batteries. The computer is built in the screen and not in the keyboard as a common laptop. this means that the computer could be used as a tablet PC without the separate keyboard.

The Compaq Concerto has a 80486 running at 25 MHz and a 100 meg hard drive. There is a PS2 connection for keyboard or mouse (if you don't wanna use the pen), a parallel- and a RS232 port and a VGA port. The screen is a VGA grayscale backlit LCD.

Ericsson step/one (1983)

Step/one is the Swedish telecom manufacturer Ericsson's first attempt to market a PC. The step/one was produced by Panasonic in Japan. It was said to by IBM-PC compliant but in reality was not. Most of the DOS programs at that time need to be adapted for the step/one. If they could be used at all. No wonder this was not a success. The idea was soon dropped and the step/ones already produced was sold to the Ericsson staff at discount prices to be used as home computers.

One of the newest computers in the museum. Maybe too new to fit in the museum, anyway I got it for free so it will stay here. Portable computers tend to older faster then desk top models do. It will very soon be a museum item. Just wait and see...

This computer runs Windows 95 with an Intel Pentium 75 MHz CPU, 8 Meg ram and a 512 MB hard drive. Serial and parallel port. Floppy drive 1,44 MB. "Product of Japan Assembled in F.R. Germany of domestic and imported components." this is what the sign on the base says. Click for big picture!
