"I have recently acquired an original Altair 8800 computer complete. It has the following components... Computer, floppy drive, keyboard, floppy disks, cables, and all the manuals. It seems to be in excellent condition. My father purchased the kit and built it himself around 1975. I was interested to learn more about it, or if you could refer me to someone that has expertise in this field.Thank You,Scott Weber"
