The IMSAI is David's home computer that he uses for his hacking activities.
Data is transfered rather too quickly - sometimes when the modem is disconnected.

I like this movie very much; have also the DVD. I saw it first time 1986 in germany in TV.
Those old 8 inch floppies really take me back. I know they probably added it for the movie, but hearing beeping noises every time text prints out on the monitor would be extremely annoying. I love watching this movie for computer nostalgia purposes though.
I love this movie, usually watch it at least once a year. We got together with a bunch of friends and went to see it when they did a one-night-only theater showing for it's 25th anniversary and had a blast. Wish they would re-release it on blu-ray!
I have an Imsia 8800. It ruined the movie for me in that they had the computer doing things WAY beyond its abilities. It would have been much better if a totally fictional computer were used.
