Hi Bill
nice to see, that not everyone is collecting the most expensive, fastest and
highest rated computers. In a few years nobody has this little models naymore,
but many people got the others...
Ok: Fidelity Micro-Chess and Novag Solo never appeared in any list I know. I
would estimate them by 1200-1300 Elopoints USCF. The Novag Scondo with his
4K-programs should lie slithly higher: about 1400 Elo USCF. All on
tournment-level 3min/move.
The Excalibur Stilleto never was available in Europe. So I cannot give you any
information about this one.
