Atari XE System

What is it?

Marketed as a video game system, it's actually a full computer - the only Atari 8-bit with a detached keyboard. I find it interesting how the built in BASIC language has a *very* similar look to a Commodore 64, even right down to the two blues.

What do you have in your collection?

One XE System, and a few carts.

What are you doing with it?

Occasionally playing games. I mean to get one of those PIO2PC units so I can get this thing talking to my PC.


None yet. Back to computer page
