In the late 70''s I paid almost four grand for this system, with a walnut cabinet for the floppy drive, processor! It was stolen from my Santa Barbara home, within two weeks...

I have a Polly 88 that worked well. I did a lot of upgrades to it including adding dual 5-1/4 shugart floppy drives with North Star Controller. I later put the polly 88 boards into an Altair 8800 box so I could add more S-100 cards. I also converted games from the Sol-80 to run on the Polly 88. Star Trek and air traffic controller. i haven''t used it in years. I have 3 complete polly 88''s that probably still work.

The Poly 88 was also available as a system 0. It included all of the basic components but without the mother board, memory or cabinet.

I built my own missing stuff and still have it.

Hmmm... I remember reading somewhere that the poly 88 was called the "micro-Altair" at some stage - the name was changed after MITs complained.
