Pewatronic Master Chess Computer

Yes, there are still people doing this. 1180 CHF makes only 1075 EUR in exchange of 2199 ELO. It's only for the eyes and the fingers but not for the wallet at all anymore.

By the way, i must admit that years ago, it was much more fun to play with these beauties than running a 3000+ ELO engine in an Android smartphone. It was a pleasure to never forget...

I remember my father used to own one of these "chess beasts" (I really thought this was stronger than Kasparov at that time ;)) - http://www.spacious-mind.com/html/designer_2000_display.html.
Up to now I thought it was one of the Mephisto models, but seems like it wasn't, and it was hardly 2000 ELO ;)
Good times though...
