Not so long ago we were talking about the older Atari 400 / 800's being short on the ground in NZ and not more than a few days ago one sold on Trade Me, now we have this listed

Yes it looks great and I never expected another to turn up.

The one I bought arrived today. No power supply so I'll have to get one.

Something was rattling around inside. This turned out to be the speaker which has come loose and broken the wires. It does have the cherry keyboard but haven't yet investigated the ram which is written as being 48k.

Also need to fix the rf leade which is missing the plug. Sure I've got one of those somewhere.

Will keep you informed as to progress.

I think you may have some competition from Matsondawson as he has gone straight in at $80 and I think he will go into the hundreds

Also its
