Um, wow. Blast from the past.

Someone is auctioning off an unbuilt MITS Altair 8800 computer kit with all the manuals and everything. $4750 at the moment with 2 days to go. I'm sure it's gonna go up.

Note that if you're just after the experience of building one, you can get a very nice repro here.
