Finally won an Atmos!

Post by JamesD » Wed Aug 13, 2008 5:47 am

I've been bidding on Atmos auctions on eBay for years and it seems every time I bid the price goes sky high, and when I don't they go cheap.

Last night I finally won one in an auction and without having to spend an arm and a leg. It was even in the US so I don't have to pay the huge shipping charges. It was $76.09 US shipped.

That's not quite as good as my Oric 1 which was around $35 but that was several years ago.

It looks like it's in pretty good shape. It also seems to work. I have to hook it to a monitor but the keys click, EXPLODE, SHOOT and other sound commands work. It's also nice to finally have a manual.

I gotta say, it has a pretty decent keyboard. I think my Dragon's keyboard has a better touch but it's better than a lot of my 8 bit collection. Definitely better than my Spectrum +2.
