For sure... need a larger screen
Yes, it's big but not even HD. It's a 852x480 old plasma screen. Lots of analog inputs however

How about a blast from the past? Here I am in '91 in the basement with my favorite computer.
I love these old photos! Honestly, it's one of my favorite things to see here on Atari Age.
It looks like our computer desks were made by the same manufacturer. Below is my system in 1990.

This is the earliest shot I've got, circa 1988. (I think I've posted it before).

Still on a single 90k full-height floppy drive, still one TI joystick (though I'd replaced the other with a third-party Atari stick), the red thing on the $10 B&W TV is a little digital clock so I could track time. E/A in the slot, I think, and no liquid paper on the front of the keys I needed for BBSing (control-period for ESC, for instance), so I didn't have the RS232 yet. And of course, note the reformatted Apple2 floppy. It got put to a greater purpose.

Yes this is wonderful
I am sure one day I will build that too, but have to learn much more,
and I need more mods for that (i.e. the USB one)
and more hardware (i.e. SCSI controller)
Same for the Geneve

Wow. Incredible. Very inspiring to me. Thanks for posting the detailed pictures.

My PEB just came in today and I just had to share work-in-progress pics!
The mailman looked at me funny when i offered to schlep the very large (and somewhat heavy) box across the street for him partly cos i was SO EXCITED!
It has the 32K expansion, the Disk Controller, and a working drive.
I was thrilled to boot up TI Logo AND one of the sample programs.
