THE RIGHT COMPUTER FOR THE TASK AT HAND
Whether you want to set up a domestic or host your own video game tournament, the versatile ATARI 800XL Home Computer fits the bill. The hefty 64K RAM memory gives you the power to perform a myriad assortment of useful tasks. Using just the console and your television, you can write and edit on the screen, create art and attractive graphics, and program with ATARI BASIC, a build-in, all purpose computer language. The full-stroke keyboard is set up like a typewriter, but with added practical features such as special function keys and a HELP key when you need extra information in a program.
