Noval Inc. (San Diego, Calif.)

The Noval 760 was built into a wooden desk. The top of the desk was split length-wise and the computer, monitor, and cassette flipped up when needed. The keyboard was in a pull-out drawer. It looked sharp, but the combination probably made for a limited customer base. How many people would be looking for a desk and a computer at the same time? And what happened when you wanted to upgrade to a new computer?
