This gallery showcases several 1970s-era machines from Steven Stengel's vintage computer collection. Stengel has graciously allowed CNET to republish his photos and descriptions. You can find much more detailed information on each machine and additional photos of the collection on his Web site
Built by IMS Associates of San Leandro, Calif., the IMSAI 8080 was one of the first consumer computers available.
(CNET sister site runs a regular series called "Dinosaur Sightings" that explores machines of a certain age. News.com is publishing this excerpt.)
