altair-brochure-coverWay back in 1975, when I was attending Cal State University, Chico, my friend Guy Hall and I started a company called NorComp.  Our business was assembling and selling Altair computer kits.

At one point we were actually offered the Northern California distributorship.

Along with lots of Altair hardware, I had a whole carton of full-color brochures.

This was a VERY expensive machine back in the day!  A maxed-out system could cost more than a new car.

If you’d like to see the whole 20 page brochure, here’s a download link.  Notice the nifty NorComp stamp on the cover?
