Naw, too common to be a holy grail, let alone THE holy grail.

The "holy grail" of computer collecting would be the mythical Altair
prototype that was supposedly shipped to Popular Electronics but never
made it. My guess is that there never was one, but that this was a
story that Ed Robert's made up instead of admitting he wasn't done with
the prototype :)
