In fairness to the truth, the Atari 400 was my brothers, I think. But seeing as we lived together at the time and I was allowed to play on it AND it is the earliest gaming memory I have, I’m including it.

I have gone and purchased all the consoles I’ve ever owned in my life and the Atari 400 was a hard one to find at a reasonable price. I ended up buying an Atari 400 and an Atari 800XL which were bundled together as ‘untested’. Luckily for me the Atari 400 worked. It did need a bit of a clean-up though!

A bit of elbow grease and the Atari 400 was looking loads better.
