    16           <p>In 1968, P101 which has been extended with more memory, was coupled to a
    17 typewriter. This made it possible to print tables and the like automatically.
    18 It is interesting to note that the computer was only capable to print numbers -
    19 text data had to be typed manually on the keyboard.<br>
    20  One of the most remarkable features of this 'computer' is its enclosure. It
    21 was designed by the Italian designer 'Mario Bellini' and got quite some awards.
    22 Even today the style of the machine is admired by many. <br>
    23  Unfortunately, Olivetti dropped this design and later machines were just plain
    24 cubes in the style of the 1970s.</p>

     181967 the <a class="go" href="/en/computer/programmable.php#101">PROGRAMMA 101</a> was not only
     19extended with respect to memory but also coupled to an electric typewriter.
     20This made it possible to print the results of a computation. Nevertheless,
     21this combination was restricted to printing numeric values only. If text was
     22required on a printout it had to be typed manually.<br><br>
     23The typewriter could also be used standalone without control be the PROGRAMMA 101.
     24The memory system, which is based on the magnetostrictive effect, has an overall capacity of 320
     25bytes organized as 10 registers with 30 digits each.<br><br>
     27This early "personal computer" was designed by the italien artist Mario
     28Bellini. Its unique design won several avards. Even today it is admired for
     29its aesthetics. Following Olivetty computers were just plain cubes. Moving
     30this unique piece of computing history is quite a feat at 130 kg.

     43shows the first model of this machine as well as its successor system with a
     44faster typewriter (on the right). The second picture is a detail photograph.
     45The third picture shows the incredibly amount of mechanical parts in this
     46system. Both machines in the museum are fully operational.
