Does somebody here want an Atari 400?

Recommended Posts

Have one already and live on the wrong side of the Atlantic.

 

Even if you don't buy it, you could ask the seller to split the lot and sell you the manual alone or at least ask the buyer whether he'd be willing to split that off or make the scans available. There are no bids on it yet and while nice with all the boxes it's not super cheap.

 

Just don't use the word "rare" or "unique" ;)

Never get these in the UK, especially not as nice as that..Shame..

 

Will make a lovely treat but agree its likely to go for silly silly money because of the condition...

It's in great condition and might be worth that price, but in my opinion it has yellowed. A new old stock, never opened, 400 sold for ~$138 last year. That didn't include any extras.

 

This 400 might be in great condition because it didn't work. Or maybe it does work, but the owner decided to get a 48K/64K machine and packed the 400 away. What's more interesting to me is the box. It looks to be not a 'sleeved' box but rather the box itself is printed. Was this an earlier box type for the 400/800's? My 800 box has an easily ripped stiff paper sleeve, much like the 800XL box sleeves that are notorious for ripping. Would have been nice if Atari had stayed with this non-sleeve box type.

Hm, wonder when they switched to the crappy boxes. I have the box my 400

came in, in... '81? And it's the same as the one here, no sleeve, box

is printed. Too bad I don't still have the 400 that came in that box :(

The auction ended yesterday with no bids. Regardless of condition, that was a LOT for what was being offered.

I watched it come and go.  Too rich for my blood.
