The Palmtex SuperMicro – rare and rubbish console

Have you guys ever seen one of these before? This is a Palmtex super micro. It was brought to my attention just recently, and I’d never even heard of it. It’s a small handheld gaming device released in the 80s, and it’s incredibly rare.

Unfortunately there isn’t that much information available about it, but I’ve crammed together as much as I could find about this fascinating little thing for this short video. If any of my viewers have one or know any more information, I’d love to know about it.

  1. Do more super obscure consoles, Sarah! My first console was an Ingersoll R-1800. It was released two years before I was born, so I have no idea how it came to be in our house, but I remember the vivid orange colour and the paddle controllers as if it was yesterday. That thing is actually one of my earliest memories.

    The most obscure handheld I ever owned was a Quickshot Supervision. It was a kind of chunky Gameboy clone, but you could tilt the screen in the middle. It wasn’t half bad actually. It had very solid build quality–unlike that Palmtex Supermicro monstrocity.

  2. Agree with Yenbaiteng, more obscure consoles. I had the turbo duo when i was younger, not super obscure but i still loved that thing.

  3. HELLO OCTAVIOUS, I JUST SAW YOUR VIDEO ON THIS THING, IT’S PRETTY AWESOME, AND YOU’VE INSPIRED ME DO DO SOME RESEARCH.

    THIS THING DIDN’T EVEN HAVE A WIKI PAGE, SO I DECIDED TO CREATE ONE, AND DURING MY SEARCH I FOUND SOME THINGS YOU MIGHT FIND INTERESTING. This thing was actually released in January 1984, and had a DIFFERENT name during development and release.

    I USED THE INTERNET ARCHIVE OF MAGAZINES FOR MY SEARCH, CHECK THE CITATIONS ON THE WIKI PAGE TO LOOK AT THE STUFF I FOUND IN THE MAGAZINES.

    THIS IS TRULY AN INTERESTING CONSOLE THAT COULD HAVE BEEN SO MUCH MORE COOLER, BUT SOMETHING WRONG HAPPENED.

    IF IT WOULDN’T BE A BOTHER TO ASK, COULD YOU CONTACT your friend Quang? This console is really poorly documented, and since he has one, could you ask him if he could make high quality scans of all the paperwork included in the box including the manuals and instructions for the internet archive? This would really help in documenting the system. I tried giving a description on the aladdin game, but I have no idea what to say.

  4. Hello I have a palmtex super micro computer I been trying to SEll. I have only Aladdin adventures, and no light box. The box is with it but beat up. The USEr Manuals are also with it. The system itself is in great condition. THEonly thing is someone left BATTERIES in it and it might need to be CLEANED or some magic To try to get it to work.
