Thread: What Atari computer do you own

  1. #61

    Default

    Hello

    There are some great Atari collections there!

    For the moment, I own:

    Atari 520 STe
    Atari 1040 STf
    Atari Mega ST4

    For the moment, I'm looking for a 800XL as it was THE computer for a friend of mine when he was young, I'd like to make him this pleasure.

    See you,

    Thomas

    Atari 130XE
    Atari 520STFM Enhanced
    Atari 800XL
    Atari Falcon030 Computer System Expanded
    Atari XE Game System (XEGS)

    I also have a Compumate for the Atari 2600, so that sort of counts.

    My favorite of those? Tough call. If it were working 100%, it would probably be the 1200XL for its look and feel, but on the 8-bit side, probably the 800 for its features and age.

    Here's my full list of systems/platforms that is relatively up-to-date: http://www.billandchristina.com/vgamecomp/systems.htm

    Honestly, I'd have to look again to see all the stuff the Falcon has. It was pretty loaded when I got it. I believe it was part of a fairly sophisticated music setup.

    I used to own the Atari 400-I believe it was. Mom though it away when I moved out. She also threw away 7 Gretzky rookie cards. Thanks mom.

    Would seriously recommend having a good play with that there sounds like you've got an enviable setup.

    My mum also threw out the 520stfm with 1mb upgrade, a broken stfm, 2 monitors and loads of original games (still got 2 black bags full of original boxes in the loft though)
    Thank god my dad saved the st hard drive, mice, joysticks and the falcon.

    busted up 520stfm I pulled out of the garbage. No floppy drive. I think I have the p/s even, but it's detached from the 'puter and I never played w/it, strangely enough.

    I suffer from sever Atari ST/TT/Mega/Falcon envy. I think it's one of the, if not the coolest computers of the 80s. It just so bloody rocks. And so does my heap. Hope to get it working eventually. Or acquire new Atari stuff altogether.

    I do have some Mega chips I bought off ePay too. I think NOS replacements or what have you.

    how could I forget. I *did* own the remnants of the Lynx I bought new years ago. I took it apart, years ago, and left it that way. The lcd had a bubble on the screen, not sure if that was evidence of a catastrophic defect or not. Maybe that's why I chucked it. I think I chucked it.

    oh and incidentally I'm in the market for all sorts of ST/TT/Mega/Falcon parts and basket cases. Possibly even Lynx stuff too. Shoot me a pm if you have anything you want to sell. I'm in New Jersey (for now...).

    I've got the following:

    Atari 400
    Atari 800 (with Bit-3 "Full-View 80" videocard)
    Atari 600XL
    Atari 800XL
    Atari 1200XL
    Atari XEGS
    Atari MegaST-2

    I've got various Atari and Indus disk drives, plus modems, printers, 850 interfaces, hard disks and such for them..but I'd have to say that the original 800 is my favorite of them. I usually use it with the Indus GT floppy drives and various DOS versions. It's such a capable system, and once you include the ROM/RAM slots as expansion slots, plus all of the external add-ons, it's quite expandable as well. I used to love driving up to Toad Computers outside of Anapolis, MD and seeing what kind of 8-bit stuff they had stashed away.

    Attached is a sign still displayed here locally, an electronics shop proclaiming that they are an authorized Atari dealer, though it's a bit faded after all this time.
