I have only owned one dedicated chess computer in my life: a Fidelity
Sensory Chess Challenger 8 which I purchased in 1982.  I still keep it in
the original box, have the sales receipt, have the Fidelity sales brochure
that came with it, and I still occasionally play a game against it.  It is
weak by today's standards, but it has brought many "casual" players to
their knees.  I love it, and I will never get rid of it.  B^D
Have you ever considered doing a running series of posts, each detailing
the history, specifications, etc. of a particular model?  I for one would
be an avid reader....
