We have one of those.
I don't think it was the first computer my father built. My father and
some of his JPL buddies would go to these computer swap meets and buy
parts, and I am told that Steve Jobs was selling stuff at some of them and
I probably saw him there. I am trying to remember if that IMSAI 8080 used
the wire wrap or solder. If my memory is correct it was wire wrap and a
lot easier to put together than his earlier computers.
Wow, the wikipedia <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMSAI_8080> page says:
Support for early IMSAI systems continues to this day.
