    Default Seen on ebay: Unbuilt McGraw-Hill NRI Microcomputer kit

    Just thought I would mention this:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Unbuilt-McGr...dl#ht_4586wt_0

    It is quite similar to a "CREI 680" system that I have - except for branding, and that mine looks like trash. This eBay item looks in near perfect and unbuilt condition! It is a Motorola 6800 series computer/electronics trainer and can be operated at different levels of completion. Although it has a keyboard, it also has blinkenlights on a smaller control panel.

    That's amazing. I wish I had the $$ for it.

    Way back in my Jr. year of high school, a math teacher had one of those - it used a black & white TV as a display. He had us doing a head-to-head challenge with a game of Othello between that machine and a Commodore 64. I don't recall at all which machine did a better game of Othello, but the machine was unforgettable because of how it differed from the PETs and '64s we had in class.

    Just bought that unbuilt kit on EBay. I'm going to build it and get it running. Maybe do a series of you tube videos showing the build and operation. I noticed that the PCBs are prebuilt and are very early 6800 boards from "Motorola Memory Systems". Only just received a working MEK6800D2 a few days ago. Two great finds in one month! If you have any questions or have any info you could share please don't hesitate to do so.
