CONTINUITY: Paper Models of Vintage Computers

The IMSAI 8080 page says:

I know these systems were often used as CP/M machines but who beyond the well-to-do and die-hard enthusiasts would have found a use for one of these systems in these early days is unclear to me.

Nonsense: most of these machines were connected to ASCII terminals and used with CP/M for software development, word processing, and other minicomputer-type work at a fraction of the cost of alternatives. For developing 8080 software, the cost was far less than Intel's development system. I used an IMSAI chassis and peripheral boards to develop and test my Marinchip 9900 16-bit S-100 CPU board.
