Models on Display

Atari 400 

The Atari 400 & 800 were the first personal computers produced by Atari - a company known for their video games. The two models began the Atari 8-bit family, which had new additions until 1992. The two models were shown off at the Consumers Electronics Show in January 1979, with a release date of that November. Jay Miner, who later designed the Amiga 1000 personal computer in 1985, designed both the Atari 400 and 800! Both models were released simultaneously, but the 400 was the lower cost alternative to the 800. Both computers doubled as a video game console, as cartridge games and joysticks could be inserted for play. The Atari 400 was discontinued in 1983, while the Atari 800 ended production in 1984. They were replaced by new additions to the Atari 8-bit family.
