Altair price check

Boy, ain't that the truth! Sometimes pricing is not so subjective
as it is absurd! I saw an ATARI 1200XL at a thrift for $49.95,
sitting next to a fully functional WY-50 (my favourite terminal, BTW)
for $9.95, complete with keyboard (miraculously).

Guess which one I pounced on?
