1975 Altair Christmas Catalog

These pages, featuring minicomputer kits and peripherals from the MITS Altair product line (including the 8800). They were pulled from the December 1975 issue of Popular Electronics magazine. 1975 was an important year for Altair, in January of that year sales of the 8800 took off and help spark the microcomputer revolution. I am sure this catalog helped to fuel many a future computer professional imagination.
