Do tell us how long it takes to arrive, and how it works for ya!   It's certainly interesting.

Bought a very rough (and very cheap) 7800 and am currently mid-restoration. PCB seriously cleaned up as the shield was just rust and a lot of it was all over the board and had leeched into the joystick ports and switches. So swapped those from a broken 2600 junior. Swapped some switches around (select was iffy, swapped with pause that I won't use) I wouldn't mind replacing them but can't find any. Re-capped it while I was in there. Removed cleaned and replaced the cart slot. Just waiting for a UAV to land to drop in and I'll re-assemble.

I am really hoping I can do joystick emulation in general and trackball emulation for supported games with my Kensington Expert USB trackball mouse. Probably the best commercial trackball out there, although the buttons are a little more fragile than most.

A somewhat acceptable price paid for a 1200XL, power supply and 6' SIO cable.  The 1200XL still has the protective cover over the metal keys.  

Need to crack it open and fix the keyboard and see what OS and sockets are in there.

Should be fully socketed. I thought all 1200XLs were.

They are, but some have 24 pin OS sockets while others have 28 pin.

 

I have only seen the 28-pin which makes for a simple upgrade to a single 16K XL OS ROM, when combined with an 800XL MMU it also allows internal BASIC in the other 28 pin OS socket.

 

There was a recent post which suggested extending the 24 pin sockets to 28 pin using pins from a female SIP header instead of completely replacing them.

The latest acquisitions I've gotten from eBay are Avalon Hill games Legionaire and Telengard, and 81256 dram chips. The driving controller pictured with the dram chips came from Amazon. Also two Atari touch-tablets not pictured below. A 1050 drive and in-line Rapid Fire adapter.

A (new USB) EPROM burner and some EPROMs to try and put Omnimon on my new 400 RAM card.

I was looking for a topic with the title "What Atari related things did I NOT buy from eBay", but this will have to do. And I just couldn't let this go un-posted.

 

So this is what I stumbled across today that, for lack of better words, made me fall off my chair  :-o

 

You can have an Atari 1040ST, SC1224 Monitor, 800xl, 810, Sf 354, Manuals, Accessories and Disks for the measly price of $4,249.99 which doesn't even include shipping (total price with shipping would be just under $4,650). Now granted besides what you see pictured it does come with all of the accessories (power cords, adapters, cables), as well as a collection of books and games, and some of the original boxes. But none of this appears to be NOS.

eBay Link

For comparison I found another collection on eBay being sold for $1000+$80 shipping that includes: an Atari 1040ST,  SC1224 Monitor, Bundle of Games, and a 20 Meg SupraDrive listed as Tested (ebay link).

 

Only things missing are the SF354 and 810 drives, 800XL computer, and the books. But at nearly $3,600 less, this appears to be a much better deal. Besides most of the books and also the games can be downloaded from the internet anyway.

 

I wish the first seller luck, but I think he's in for a rude awakening and/or will be seeing a Best Offer significantly lower than the asking price.

 

EDIT: Maybe to some the included original games and books are worth it.

 

- Michael

ABBUC has a thread for 'crazy Atari EBay prices', so feel free to start one here ;) Some people digging up stuff from their attics seem to remember those Apple I auctions when it comes to pricing them.
