Few people have heard of it, yet many consider John Blankenbaker's KENBAK-1 to be the first commercial personal computer.

Oddball Micros: Rockwell AIM-65

AIM-65
I scribbled a comment in my notebook a few weeks ago about the $375 AIM 65: “Insane cash registerish thing.” That pretty well sums it up. Rockwell was better known for its defence contracts than its microcomputers. The AIM 65 was a 6502-based machine with a built-in single line LED display and a cash-register style thermal printer on the top panel. It came with either 1K or 4K of memory, dual cassette interfaces for storage, and three empty internal ROM slots for programming languages or user programs.

The AIM-65 was quite successful because it filled a wide range of industrial needs by being cheap, simple, and extremely compact.
