For us "old folks" (in other words, those who grew up with it from the "get-go") - YOUR thoughts on the 5200..... 40 YEARS AGO... and now!!!


Recommended Posts

I got a 400/410 in July of 82, three months before the debut of the 5200.


The 5200 was a great curiosity, which became less as I learned it was just a 400 with different controllers and cartridges. Still, it retained an appeal because it was such a modern looking system.


Although both technically flawed, the 5200 and 1200XL were the greatest-looking products Atari ever released.
