I assume it's the *original* Altair that's in big demand, and I'm sure
there were less than 10,000 "straight" 8800's made (at least, the serial
number has a distinct 10K problem).

But, as we've seen, for those speculators who apparently don't know any
better, even a late model turnkey can fetch upwards of $4K.
