In Topic: ATARI XL Keyboard for PC

This thread remembered me a friend's project: he build a PC inside an 800XL case. He also remapped the keyborad by himself, so it can be used. See by yourselves... one PC inside one Atari.

Yes.  But why?  It's never going to be portable unless you want to drag a monitor around and that would still need a power supply.

Hi Yorgle, just throwing out my random thoughts to see what kind of things people have thought of as i love a good mod :)

Ok random thoughts on full again here (please forgive me if this is a mad thought as i am not a techie)....

 

Could an Atari 800xl be powered by batteries or even a mobile or laptop battery.

 

Again just throwing my thoughts out there to see if anyone has thought of these already or if anyone knows if if is possible.

 

Any links are welcome too :)

Hi  UNIXcoffee928,

 

The comment about "Torches & Pitchforks will be distributed to the townspeople, in the queue, on the left", really made me laugh loads. Thank you.
