I, too, had an Atari-800...in 1979 before their 'XE' model was introduced.
Other's mentioned how far computers have come since then.
Well, I distinctly recall that Atari-800 cost me $2500 (US)!!
That included 2 floppy drives at $495 _each_, upgraded memory and
an incredibly fast 300-Baud modem
The 'puter I built earlier last year (check system specs- link lower left corner),
cost me _under_ $800 (US).
