Yes, my thoughts exactly. Built in OSS (or 2) would be awesome!

There is no space left to put something like that.

I have a spare Mitsumi that needs a mylar.

Guys, it seems that Atari 800 (not XL) with mylar is very rare. I have now four 800 here, all have mechanical keyboard... Could you check your versions? I do not know if it is smart to order a big batch of such mylars...

Next question: what is the price of 1200XL mylar at Best Electronics? Are they NOS, or fresh production? Does anyone have a photo of such mylar?

You have a HiTek or Stackpole keyboard.

The Mitsumi's are the good ones that all professional typers demand.


Please order MANY mylars. There are MANY 800 owners interested in this.

#RedPill needed for the emulator guys.


Do you have a keyboard on your laptop (or desktop) anywhere as comfortable as a Mitsumi?

Can you physically put a 5.25" disk in? If so, WHERE?

Can you truthfully say that you actually ARE an Atari 8 bit user when you don't even own an Atari computer?

How does the artifacting look? Kind of fake, right? (NO shot was taken at any emulator).

What about getting a new peripheral and feeling the joy when you just plug it into SIO and it works?

And those lovely joyport devices like Corvus and MPP modems, and all the others? Some of them are emulated, but it's not the same as hooking up the physical connection.
