    The sticker was fairly to be expected. The US had a large number of schools in Germany. When the drawdown happened in the early 90s, many of these schools were closed and the contents sold off. That meant the computer labs were turned into cheap government surplus. If the XL cost more than $10 at the auction, I would be surprised.

    The hospital setup looks a bit interesting. The actual medical device seems a lot newer than the Atari. I guess a general purpose serial port output for recording could be paired with any computer. I have no idea if the software was developed by that hospital alone or adapted from another program.
