Re: The Atari IBM PC Owners Thread (PCx Series, ABC, Portfolio)

Hi FlaminJoe, Another question for you if you don't mind. Reading back through this post, you were looking into the jumpers on the PC3 motherboard (jumper block W4) - did you ever find out anything more on this and if the machines does support 1.44mb drives? Thank you Sorry for the very late reply,...

Re: [Found] Atari PC3 / PC4 / PC5

I had a PC1 and PC4 with monitors boxed that I got from B+C in the 90's. The PC1 was serial number 00000007. Both were pretty neat machines but I sold them off a couple of years ago though. Did you try and contact B+C? They still may have machines or parts. I attempted to contact B&C about a ye...

Re: Wanted: Atari PC3 / PC4 / PC5

Just an update, I'm no longer in need of these items. I've since managed to collect a few Atari PC3's, an Atari PC5 and just recently a PC4 which is currently on it's way to me. Thanks!

Re: The Atari IBM PC Owners Thread (PCx Series, ABC, Portfolio)

Hi, I have just got hold of a working Atari PC3, but it has no RTC battery. Can anyone here please let me know what type is needed for this machine? Many thanks for your help! They came with a Panasonic BR-E3 6V Lithium Battery. Many IBM XT/AT PC's had the same or similar battery. I'm not sure if P...

The Atari PC1, PC2 and PC3 (all 8088 CPU's) came with GEM. This being a 286 the choice was made to go with Windows instead.

Re: for sale: Atari PC4

I'll most definitely take it off your hands if your willing to send it to Australia. If not I have a freight forwarder I can use in Germany to make things easier.

Would be an absolute gold mine of information for my website (see below).

Re: The Atari IBM PC Owners Thread (PCx Series, ABC, Portfolio)

Since I last posted on this thread I've taken my passion for the Atari PC's to a new level and created a website. :D http://www.ataripc.net/ One of the things which I found frustrating when trying to find information on these PC's is the lack of anything detailed, and by detailed I mean photo's, man...

Re: The Atari IBM PC Owners Thread (PCx Series, ABC, Portfol

Wow so many replies. I completely forgot about this thread! My PC3 arrived last week so I've been busy playing around with it, reliving those memories and starting the process of cleaning it up and restoring it. So I've been otherwise preoccupied. :D @spiny That looks pretty cool! My backup plan if ...

Re: Approving posts

Hi,

Same here. I've got two posts, one in my wanted ad in my signature, and another which I've lost track where it was now that haven't been approved yet others have.

Re: The Atari IBM PC Owners Thread (PCx Series, ABC, Portfol

Launching of IBM PC compatibles was considered by most of ST and follower owners as not good move, almost as betrayal. And there were reasons for it - development of ST line was not really strong. We (and press) just thought that Atari wants to make money in easier way. Fair enough. I was too young...

if you get it up and running, please make a youtube video as there is no video of a atari pc there! I don't have a video on Youtube but I just started a thread which I hope you will join.

The Atari IBM PC Owners Thread (PCx Series, ABC, Portfolio)

Hi all, In my travels on various Atari forums trying to hunt down Atari IBM PC's, I've noticed that there is a distinct lack of information not only on the internet, but also the Atari forums like this one don't seem to have a place for us. I think this is a shame considering the Atari line of IBM P...

As soon as I saw the title I knew exactly what it was. I can't remember how long it's been since I've seen it and the name of the paint program I used at the time escapes me. Memories....

[Found] Atari PC3 / PC4 / PC5

Hi all, I've been on a few forums trying to track down an Atari PC3 8088 or an Atari PC4 80286 with some success. I managed to pick up a PC3 (just the box) but it's in need of some restoration and I would like if possible to find the original Atari PC keyboard. The mouse is no problem to find as it ...
