Commodore / MOS / CSG KIM-1 User Guide, Schematics, Hints and Source Code

The MOS KIM1 was the worlds first fully assembled computer.  It was a fairly popular KIT computer that MOS technologies released in 1975 for just US$245 as a ‘Computer Trainer’.  Commodore bought MOS in 1976 for US$800,000 and renamed it to Commodore Semiconductor Group (CSG).  CSG continued to make the KIM-1 until about 1980.
