Hello! I'm Mario, and thank you for visiting my site. My interest in the Tatung Einstein started at the tender age of 10 when my parents first bought one for me at Edinburgh Computers for £750! This price covered the base unit and a colour monitor. Coming home from school that day I couldn't believe my luck!
At the time there were very few software titles available for the machine and as such I decided to start programming on the machine myself. I learned to type and program on the Einstein so it does hold fond memories for me.
I always liked the superb keyboard the Einstein has, very clicky and easy to type with.
I remember wishing my dad had bought me a Spectrum 48K as I used to hate walking into John Menzies on Princes Street in Edinburgh and seeing the amazing plethora of Spectrum titles of all genres! This amazed me that there was so little support for the Tatung Einstein, considering it had 64K and could handle anything the Spectrum could.
And so, 34 years later I still have the original Tatung Einstein fully functioning and with all the games and also the programs I coded myself.
This site launched in 2006, and has been alive for eleven years now. I am immensely proud of that, and Tatung Einstein Reborn! will always continue. It is great to keep this machine alive through this dedication website, I hope you enjoy the memories of this great machine. If you have one but have relegated it to the loft, go and dust it off and give it some life after all these years, you know you want to!
Enjoy the trip down memory lane, sit back and remember... those were the days, weren't they! Just pure 100% retro gold.
Kings Valley, anyone?
