is it a sensory voice or a challenger sensory champion?

personnaly I think it is the famous champion no?

Hi dany

Your Fidelity Chess Challenger Champion was something special in it's day. Several extra features including more levels of play, take back, mate in 3, tournament mode, countdown mode and others not included in the Voice Sensory. But the most important feature was the 6502 chip which made it briefly the strongest chess computer available to the public. It cost £330 in the UK. About 1200 Euros in 2008 values.

Champion regards
Mike

Boris is Dany's avatar... but they are talking about the computer in the auction, which is a Sensory Champion :


Best regards,

Hmmm, I wonder if non testata means the same as untested in English...

This usually means: However hard tried, I did not manage to get it working

I hope for you it should be interpreted differently  this time

Wishing you good luck (and if you buy it, please don't withhold the outcome),

tom

P.S. The cost of shipping is no rip-off, anyway ...

Yes it is.
You can read the word "champion" under the keyboard to the right of the display.
