...and if memory serves, for a time IMS also offered trade-in deals for
owners of MITS 8800 systems. Having used (but not owned) both, I liked the
IMSAI a lot better as regards quality of construction than the MITS.
Eventually all of my cards wound up in an Integrand Systems no-blinking
lights box with a many-slot actively-terminated motherboard. But I still
have the MITS box.
