VintageAtari 800 with Accessories Works Clean Used Good Condition. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.
I purchased this vintage Atari 800 from (I believe) its original owner. I disassembled and cleaned thoroughly and reassembled then tested on and off for several days. I successfully tested everything I could think of and found no issues. All keys work, all keys register, no sticking or loose keys (see image of screen). Serial port tested by successfully booting from multiple disks (disks, drive and Serial cable not included). Tested both the RF output (using the included RF cable) and the 5pin monitor port (5pin monitor cable not included). On/off switch works good. The on/off switch for the cartridge cover also works good. All four joystick ports work. The two included cartridges (BASIC and Asteroids) work. I played Asteroids for 30+ minutes then left it on for multiple hours.
There are no visible cracks or other damage to the outer casing. Some signs of wear are visible but minor. The overall color is uniform and good for its age (see the pictures). I do not believe any special case brightening is warranted. Your judgement may differ from mine. Using the BASIC cartridge the command 'PRINT FRE(0) returns '37902' which indicates 48K of RAM. The three 16K RAM cards do not have their outer casings. This is not uncommon. Some owners choose to remove the RAM outer casings in the thought that they would run cooler that way.
I think the previous owner intentionally placed a small clear dot of glue on the 'H' and '7' keys as a means of 'finding' those centering keys when positioning one's hands on the keyboard, it is not very visible at all. I believe they unintentionally spilled this same clear glue on and just below the 'On' light (see pictures). None of it is very visible, I kind of like it on the 'H' and '7'. I think it would do more damage than good to try to remove it from the 'On' light and just below.
This is a 1979 computer so it is old and susceptible to damage. Although I did all of the testing I describe here and I find nothing wrong with the operation of this nearly 40 year old computer, I must sell it As-Is. I will take extra care in packaging with bubble wrap to protect the keyboard and case during shipping.Included: Atari 800 with 48K for RAM, matched/correct power supply, BASIC and Asteroids cartridges, joystick and Owner's Guide.
