HANIMEX COMPUTACHESS MODEL HCG 1700 ELECTRONIC CHESS COMPUTER

Your COMPUTACHESS III is the world's most conveniently operated chess computer! Developed from COMPUTACHESS I , it includes many new operating features which will greatly add to your pleasure in using it. You can now play against your computer opponent with a full-sized chessboard and pieces -- as you would against a human opponent. And since it runs entirely on batteries (you'll find it extremely economical on power consumption!), the machine is fully portable.
