It would be useful to know which Atari you're looking for.
You might also mention roughly where you're located, in case there's someone nearby.

I have a 2600 rig ready to go, if that's what you're looking for.

Right, location, model would be helpful. Definitely in the right place to get something like this.

Well, the use of the word "Monitor" makes me think probably the ST line - they're the only Atari comp. line that had it's own monitor requirement.

8-bits can run off a TV or if you want a bit of a better picture, off a 1702 C64 monitor.

Not only monitor - he mentions mouse. While I'm not an expert on the Atari 8-bit computers, I think only occasionally you would use a mouse with those, if at all. It definitely sounds like the poster is looking for an Atari ST setup, perhaps even a Mega, TT or similar if there is a need for an external keyboard.

Indeed, I use my 800XL often and can't honestly remember any time I ever used a mouse with it, or indeed what mouse one would use with it.

Seems he is looking for an ST, that one definitely did use a mouse. Never used a mouse myself with my 800XL, either. I guess the 2600 is out of the question, then.

Everyone should have one, it's a great system.

You need to upgrade your picture. That does not look like you anymore!
