Nice looking machine,  though the price asked is insane...

I wonder why the keyboard wasn't centered in that enclosure?

I remember the guy that ran that company publishing articles with all of the 
technical details included in the articles,  and it was pretty simple and 
straightforward stuff.  That backplane/mainboard looked a whole lot like the 
image I'm remembering from some article or other.

If I found one of these I'd probably take it home.  But pay anything like 
that?  He's crazy.  Not to mention "Altair" and "1976" being inaccurate,  as 
well as "mid-1970s",  this was a bit later than that,  late 1970s at least.
