Atari 65XE

The image is clickable

1985.

Atari 65XE was a direct successor for a declining Atari 800 XL. All software for Atari 400XL/800XL were compatible, not only to this model, but also to the "big brother" Atari 130XE, which came at the same time. What separate the two XE models was mainly that Atari 65XE had half as much RAM.

When the XE models came, Atari introduced a completely new exterior that the successors retained. Atari 65XE/130XE was not too old, they rather wanted to invest in the new successors ST (520 and 1040).

Is there any errors? e-mail and correct me!
