The Atari 800 was the higher-end model of Atari's first foray into the home computer field. Announced in October 1980 along with the lower specification Atari 400, the 800's most notable difference was its full, typewriter keyboard.
It is surprising to note that both machines contained custom graphics and I/O processors (ANTIC and POKEY respectively), a design feature rarely seen in most early machines.
