What are Atari Computers?
Atari is a corporate brand name and is owned by the subsidiary of the French publisher Atari.
Atari Inc. was established in 1972 by Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney. The corporation makes arcade games, video game consoles and computers.
The Atari 400 and 800 were the company's first personal computers developed in 1978 which is included with a high-end chipset that had originally been planned for use in Atari's video game consoles.
The 1200XL introduced in 1982 and contained an entirely different mismatched platform from its 400/800 predecessors.
Atari quickly swapped the 1200XL with the 600/800XL models, which were more compatible than 1200XL and additionally they are included with a new parallel bus interface for peripherals.
The 1600XL model had a dual processor system that made it compatible with IBM computers.
The XL computers were exchanged in 1985 with the XE line--the 65XE and 130XE computers with color monitors, 3.5 inch floppy disks and 512K bytes of memory to help make them competitive with other systems.
In 1987 Atari industrialized more computers that are compatible with IBM's systems. The Atari PC-1 system had a integrated disk drive and ports to be compatible with the IBM XT computer.
In 1996, the new Atari Interactive division failed to improve the company and was taken over by JTS, a maker of computer disk drives. Two years later in 1998, JTS sold Atari properties to Hasbro Interactive for $5 million.
