What fond memories do you have of Atari's 8-bit computers, the 400 and 800, which were first introduced in the fall of 1979 and then evolved into the 600XL and 800XL in 1982 (an early version of these two successors, the 1200XL, was introduced although it wasn't well-received), the same year a console-based version was released that was known as the 5200 Super System?

The 400, 600XL, 800, 800XL and 5200 were known for the fact they used the MOS 6502C microprocessor, something the Nintendo N.E.S. would also use.

Starting January 1985, the 600XL and 800XL became the 65XE and 130XE, and Atari developed a line of 16-bit computers (the 520ST was the most popular).
