The AIM 65 was the successor of the KIM 1. In contrast to the primitive
calculator keyboard and the display, the AIM 65 has an ASCII keyboard
and a twenty-character 16-segment LED-display, which can also display
alphanumeric characters.
Additionally, there is a small thermal paper printer, which was used
otherwise in electronic desktop calculators.
The computer board was delivered separately from the keyboard, which was
connected via a flat ribbon cable to the mainboard. At first, the user
had to provide a box and a power supply by himself, just like with the 
Apple 1. Later on, Rockwell delivered a  very ugly plastic case 
with the AIM 65, that also does not contain a power supply.
