Task: Explore Atari 8-bit Computer Hardware Manuals
Needed: A web browser
Time: 15-30 mins
I love reading the manuals that came with Atari 8-bit computer hardware. I think it is because it reminds me of opening a new Atari. I still have a number of these because my father was a pack rat and kept everything. I am glad he did. Fortunately, most of these have been scanned and can be found online for your reading pleasure. I list some of the common ones below.
Here are some links to some of the more common 8-bit Atari hardware. This is not meant to be an exhaustive list of all Atari hardware. Others can be found with a search of the Internet Archive or via Google.
These are fun to browse. I always learn something when I read through them. You can find most of these on eBay for about $5 to $10.
