MK-85 and Casio (or this Tandy) looks like two coins because soviet engineers simply take the interface modules (screen and keyboard) from cheaper pocket computer (Casio PB-100) and placed over their own platform $ PDP-compatible 16-bit chipset. Result is strange $ big computer (MK-85 can work with very big numbers $ over to 10^4000) is closed in calculator''s cage with small screen and ugly keyboard. Add there lack of any interfaces to make a program backup (there are no tape recorder or printer ports in MK-85) and you can fully imagine this strange pocket computer. Programs are saved in 2K volatile memory divided to ten parts without any chance to make a hardcopy.
Many of MK-85 still work today like new. Think, what today''s pocket devices can still work over 20 (MK-85 manufactured up to 1991) or near 30 years like Casio?
