How many Altair 8800 REV 0 with default C8080 (no suffix "A") produced? according serial number :confused:

Beside C8080 (no suffix A), these machine have distinct characteristics:

- Black Capacitor on PSU part.
- Yellow or blue pillars (card holder), I believe machine with yellow pillar card holder is among the earliest.

The biggest serial I saw on internet is 798th (220798A, on ebay), with blue pillar card holder.

The smallest serial I saw on internet is 5h (220005A, on video), with yellow pillar card holder.
