We are now taking preorders for the Altair 8800micro 4th batch. We need at least 10 preorders then we can begin production. The front panels which are made from brushed aluminum take about 4 weeks to make. Once they come in we will be able to fill orders. Updates on the status of production will be sent on a regular basis to keep you updated.
Briel Computers specializes in retro hobby computer kits. We started in 2003 with a replica of the first Apple computer the Apple 1. We focus on developing computer kits and boards like those you could purchase in the 1970′s and early 80′s. During this era, computers were very expensive so many people opted to build a computer from a kit and save money. The industry for computer kits was vast and very popular with computer enthusiast of the era. After several years offering kits, we have expanded our lineup to give builders a choice of kits to choose from.
Can’t solder? No problem, we offer assembled and tested units at very reasonable prices. All of our kits use high quality parts and every effort is put into the design to ensure your successful build. We encourage electronic education and try to help those who are learning better understand the hardware technology. Be sure to check our news blog for updates on events. We often host workshops and attend venues where we demo our kits. In the workshops, you get hands on experience building a kit with an instructor in a classroom environment.
Take a look at our products and stay tuned for new products under development. We are always trying to recreate the past.Our latest project is a clone of the OSI Superboard II. You can read more on the progress of this project on the forums.
