This is another chess computer which is reasonably hard to find.It appears in only a few collections and there are not a lot of sales on Ebay outside the UK.
Whilst more IM-01Ts are now finding their way onto Ebay it is still quite a rare chess computer outside Russia.
It now has a page on but has yet to acquire a rating. It works perfectly though the display is typically slightly askew and the 4th character a little dimmer than the others.
It works from an integral power supply with the attached cable and Euro plug normally stored in the rear compartment.
Included are a good condition manual and a rear compartment cover, but no chesspieces.. Easy to play whether you use the peg sensory board or just the keypad, and possibly unique in having both methods of input?
The SE12 processor runs at 3.6MHz and the program is the Budapest with slight improvements, according to Computer Chess Digest 1985.
No doubt it was released to seek an advantage over the then recently upgraded Novag Constellation 3.6MHz.
Peri chess computers were manufactured in small numbers in Austria.
All five models are rare, though the Beta is easier to find than the Alpha, Gamma, Delta and Epsilon.
The 9A, which ran at 1.5MHz, was then superceded by the 9B running a version of the Budapest program at 2.0MHz in October 1983. It is in very good condition, and works correctly with the supplied adaptor (USA type) or 4 x ‘C’ batteries.
