Hi Franck... I knew that some french atarifans would be there...

 

Of course I have better pictures of those but it would then be too obvious... I will post them here when I have more feedback on that one...

Ok, right these are 130xe. But no masking tape on them, it's something else... Have a look at these front pictures (in fact both machines share a lot of features but still have some differences):

 

130xe #1

 

130xe #2

 

And finally with this one you'll see the kind of mod:

 

mod close-up

 

More info will come later...

An internal 3 1/2 inch drive from a labtop? Very nice. Please tell us how you did it. And more pics of inside.

Right... It's an internal drive from a laptop fit inside the 130xe. The name of that one is the 130xeSD.

 

It's not an official machine of course but a hack. It was not my work but I'm now the proud owner of one of the few which are existing (I only know about 2)...

 

The internal drive is just the top of the iceberg. I will do more pictures and post more info this weekend...

I'm guessing the other mod, then, is a formerly-external 2400b or higher modem with the LEDs placed in the Atari nameplate.

No modem inside sorry but some more info:

 

-1 meg RAM (soldered on the 1st model and socketed on the 2nd)

-multi-rom boot (8 on the 1st with led display for the name of the rom/ 4 on the second with onscreen menu)

-of course 3.5 floppy drive

-sio2pc inside (on the 1st model not on the 2nd)

-stereo sound switch (with headphone plug on the 2nd)

-external slave 5.25 drive port (on the 1st model)

-I may forget some other things but I will make a page with more details and pics soon...

 

In fact the first is more like a prototype, the second being more detail oriented...
