So I've had an inkling for some time to jump back into A8 after idk 30 years! If I do though, I may (say again may) part with my 5200, largely because it's so difficult to get the controller buttons to work. Plus most if not all of the 5200 games were either released on A8 or have been converted. Obviously I'd probably get one of the multicarts as I have zero intention of buying individual (and expensive) games or fiddling with diskettes!
In any case, fairly general question I know, but what is the most recommended model to try to get? I see the 800XL around quite a bit. For nostalgic reasons I'd prefer to get an original 400/800, since that's what we had back then, but not sure if that can play enough games?
