    Default Altair on eBay - original box, invoice, packing slip!

    You guys see this?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=330130253815

    Should be an interesting watch....


    EDIT: Wow! Same seller has an Imsai 8080 w/ original box, as well. Estate auction, apparently.
    Looks like they link back here to vintage-computer.com

    Nice. The system is built out wrong (ribbon cable, incorrect motherboard (although it could be a MITS anyway) etc. but the condition is exceptional.

    And the box is cool.

    I have been trying for this one, but don't have a high confidence I will win.

    Same seller listed 2 others, including an 8800b.

    Dang - whoever died, sure had GREAT taste in vintage equipment

    I saw that as well. I bookmarked everything they are selling. Nice estate sale, imo.

    Hi,
    I just listed our old Altair 8800 system on ebay. Then looking for information on it, I found this forum. If anyone is interested it is ebay Item number: 180133473494
    Link:
    &rd=1"]cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=008&sspagename=STRK%3AME SE%3AIT&viewitem=&item=180133473494&rd=1&rd=1[/URL]

    This is my first post, so sorry if this is at all inappropriate here.

    My Dad and older brother built it when I was around ten years old, I'm 42 now! Still have a lot of great memories of the success, failure, and mostly the fun we had working with this machine.

    Later,

    Wow, that's an amazing final price. I had bid early on, but it quickly got out of control. I can't wait for the results...

    Yeah, I'd meant to congratulate you on that.

    My bid was way lower.

    I hope everything works perfectly!

    Keith-
    That's a nice looking system and a very early version of the Pertec FD400 floppy drive. I suggest that you also mention your auction to the people over at the Altair Computer Club at
