The Micral was the earliest commercial, non-kit personal computer
The Micral was the earliest commercial, non-kit personal computer based on a micro-processor, the Intel 8008. Thi Truong developed the computer and Philippe Kahn the software. Truong, founder and president of the French company R2E, created the Micral as a replacement for minicomputers in situations that didnīt require high performance.
Selling for $1,750, the Micral never penetrated the U.S. market. In 1979, Truong sold Micral to Bull.
