Hanimex Computa Chess HCG 1900 (1984)

Your HCG 1900 is a chess computer in the true world championship class. Developed from the program which won a clear victory in the second European Microcomputer Chess Championship, it has since undergone major modifications which have greatly enhanced its ability. Whether you play it under regular tournament conditions or challenge it to a “blitz” game, you will find it a formidable opponent.

The HCG 1900 is not only distinguished by its playing strength, it’s extremely easy to use. You simply move your piece on the board as if you were playing a human opponent, and the computer automatically senses which move you have made.

Excerpt taken from the “Hanimex Computa Chess HCG 1900” User Manual

The computer has the famous Cyrus II program from Richard Lang. This computer was originally created by Newrest Technology/CXG but also sold by Hanimex.
