Commodore KIM-I Kit
Late 1970s
Serial 128999

One of the more inexpensive early kit computers was the Commodore KIM. Based on the 8-bit MOS 6502 CPU (which sold for $25, compared to $150 for the Intel 8080), the KIM came with built-in hex display and hexadecimal keyboard. It had a clock speed of about 1.8 mhz and could address up to 2 kilobytes of RAM. This KIM-I "homebrew" was heavily modified, and was hooked up to a black-and-white TV as a monitor, as well as a Teletype and electrostatic printer.
