CHESS COMPUTERS, ELECTRONIC CHESS, (Handheld)

 

Todays chess computers have come a long way from electronic chess of old. They have superb (and variable) strength and are very useful in game improvement. There's no such thing as chess computers that are too strong for any player. The software for any machine has settings from 'novice' to 'expert' so that the computer chess game is enjoyable and meaningful to any player.

Every chess computer has ELO ratings that indicate the maximum machine strength - more applicable to stronger players. What is an ELO rating? The English Chess Federation have a rating abbreviated to ECF. This rating multiplied by 8 then adding 600 would result in an equivilent ELO metric. Electronic chess machines that have over 1500 are regarded as strong - there are also computers we have that go up to and over elo 2000.
