ATARI 400 - Rev 1 16k NTSC Version
Released in November 1979 the Atari 400 is a great
looking microcomputer with four joystick ports! Why so few other units
had this feature I'll never know.
Sadly to cut down on costs Atari used a membrane
keyboard which was horrible to type on for any period of time making it
next to useless for anything serious. Originally shipped with 4k of
memory, it was quickly upped to 8kb to match the Atari 800 as RAM prices
Regardless of its keyboard
shortcomings, the Atari 400 greatly outstripped the far superior Atari
800 in sales.
