Commodore KIM-1

Donor: (Still looking it up...)
Location: Williamsburg, Virginia

This is the very first computer that Commodore ever made. It's the single board KIM-1. It has an on-board keypad and 6 digit LED read-out.

Of course, real techies didn't leave their single board computers just sitting out in the open. Oh no. They built really cool cases for them. This particular case featured a flip-top, a card cage for the RAM board, an extension of the keypad and display to the front of the enclosure, a bunch of connections on the back and a terminal hook-up. (And, of course, the required switch to choose between keypad and terminal.) There's also a very manly external power supply.
