While I am talking about very old chess computers, I remember playing
with a computer from the *late* *70's* called Chess Challenger 7 made
by Fidelity.  They sold quite a few of these through Sears and other

Did anyone ever have a rating for it?  I know that some of my friends
found it competitive, but they were around 1200 strength.

I used to put it on the "postal chess" mode where it would take 24 hours
to make a move.  The only game I ever played this way, it looked like I
was going to win easily, but I blundered and lost.  The position was
