Hitachi
MB-6880 / Basic Master and Basic Master Level 2

This early japanese computer seems quite strong with its metal case. The machine has a very sober look. The keyboard is minimalist too, no CTRL or ESC keys...

There is apparently no graphical high-resolution but the computer offers 253 predefined characters including graphic symbols.

The power switch is placed on the front case just above the keyboard.

The Basic Master eventually evolved into the Basic Master Level 2 which offered more memory (8k instead of 4k, wow).

Once I was an owner of this computer. I remember that clock speed of this computer is 750KHz. (below MHz, wow.) Double-edged clock mechanism of Motorola's 6800 brought good performance to this computer. Program exectuion speed was close to 2MHz Z80 Machine, such as Sharp's MZ-80K.
