The internal construction of the Rapidman 800 is unique and uses a robust
plastic frame to hold all mechanical and electronical components. 

The keyboard is a TI Klixon™ type, the display seems to be a Litronix assembly
and the calculator chip is a rare MK5010 manufactured by Mostek. 

The housing of the Rapidman 800 is somewhat disappointing. A cheap feeling plastic
part made of a one-piece mold with a thumb On/Off-switch. 

The Mostek MK5010 calculator chip manufactured already in 1972. 

The rare "white" edition of the Rapidman 800.
