This development system was created from Intel in 1972, and its CPU is an Intel 8008.

I didn't found so much infos about it yet, but it seems to be the oldest computer with a 8 bit CPU in one desktop case.

Some additional pictures can be found here:

A larger list of these earlier machines can be found here:

There is a Youtube video about a working Intellec 8 system:

(this was in fact the Intellec-8 mod 80)

In german, but still interesting:

I know there was an OS named ISIS for the Intellec-8 mod 80 (which had an Intel 8080 inside).
If someone have more information about an OS for the 8008 version, please tell me or comment it - thanks.

The R2E Micral was mentioned in a blog entry already:
