Those prices may be artificial, I have no way of knowing since I am not
selling mine. As far as an Altair owner hanging out on comp.os.cpm,
that may be. However, I do know that I made a few posts there about
older computers, collecting, etc. and got zero response. The group here
seems pretty knowledgeable about a lot of areas and thus I prefer this
group. I read the comp.os.cpm a couple of times a week since there is
some good info there, just mostly not about the hardware side of things
which is where my interest lies.
