Pilot Unit DA000231 Obtained. Its filthy. And this is after a quick rub down with Clorox wipes. There are bugs living in it... it will be a nice restoration project.

 

Plastic is all smooth, and no lettering on the ports. Plastic is heavily scraped and cut in the upper right corner. The silver metal is heavily stained and scratched, the pictures make it look better than it really is. I have no idea if it works. I will completely tear it down and clean it before even attempting to power it on.

 

The green "10 13" sticker just fell out of the unit, I'm assuming it was stuck to the exposed EPROM.

Nothing magical about the OS PROMS, they are stock version 10.

 

MD5 (1200XL10U12.BIN) = e19eb62ef554df174766c71c029021dd

MD5 (1200XL10U13.BIN) = 8b47c75e3e07b2f499c713fd57a2eede
Combined: e3e8c74bfe1dcd6b56af50bd9a82dc15

 

Note to self: eBay has an actual 83S DA 000231 113 unit vs the Pilot 83S DA000231 (432)

83S DA000588 113 I have it for sale on ebay.

 

Congrats to the winner! (I'd placed a bid (low #s are cool) but lost out... )

Not that matters but many eons ago I ordered an Atari 800 motherboard, it came in a thick plastic bag and what I assume an extra sticker for the computer it would of went inside of, are these things rare?

According to the Internet there were 110,000 made, not alot really, even though this computer offered nothing new worth mentioning in regards to the earlier models, it is a nice looking computer. HOW ILLOGICAL AS SPOCK WOULD DAY...

Perhaps you can do a comparison of the 800xl vs 1200xl.

you said:

So that is what I was replying too. 

AFAIK, and unless I'm a total potato, the 800XL came after the 1200XL.

When I was a kid I got an Atari 800xl, never knew there was even a 1200, in the 90s I seen a 1200 for sale and bought it assuming it came after 800xl.

 

What ya gonna do?

 

The 1200xl never seen much use mostly because i had both the Amiga 500 and the Atari st, and the rest is history.

Mine is 203 and I wrote it down on my sleeve, any significance to the 203?

The 203 indicates that the computer was manufactured in the 20th week of 1983.

The digital twilight zone...

 

Like alot of my computers, the 1200XL has never been turned on, my 400, 800, 130XE, Commodore 128, 128D, IBM AT, COCO3, and few others have never actually been used, they have been opened up, photographed but never actually used.

 

They sit in a cold storage room and been there for eons.

The amount of new serial number 1200XLs that are showing up on eBay and elsewhere is pretty amazing.

Right now we have 673 units listed in the database.  I wasn't sure we'd make it to 500.  Now I'm looking for that 1000 count!

I am now the owner of 83S DA004807 103. It is the only one I have. I decided to put the rest into circulation. I figured that when I pass on, none of my children would want to bother with my Atari collection and they would likely end up in the landfill.
