The Tektronix 4051 was more advanced than any other microcomputer on the
market circa 1976 by a longshot. It had excellent graphics generating
capability, built-in screen, a fast, high capacity tape drive, and a very
advanced built-in BASIC interpreter. Compare this against what was
contemporary for the time: The Altair/IMSAI, Apple-1, etc.
