Inside the Altair 8800
I purchased the machine after seeing only a few grainy pictures and wasn't sure what to expect. The machine was definitely used, but was definitely reparable. Several dents and scratches on the case were permanent, but the basics looked pretty good.
The interior was dusty and somewhat rusty (around the transformers), but basically sound. This unit had a RAM card bouncing around free from getting jostled in shipment. I re-slotted it before snapping this shot.
