    Atari Falcon 030 Tower

    Some of you might shoot me for posting this, but what the hell!

    I just spotted an Atari Falcon 030 computer in a tower case conversion on ebay.

    For those of you that don't know, the Atari Falcon was the last computer in the Atari ST range before Atari ditched all home computer development to concentrate on their next console, the Jaguar. The Falcon was a pretty nice machine, but had it's original design been fully seen to fruition it wuld have been even better. Instead Atari had to rush it to market because they knew they were going to end home computer development. Originally it was going to be in a modular case with separate keyboard, similar to the Atari TT, but to save time and money they used an Atari 1040ST case instead. Some key features included a dedicated DSP chip and a 68030 CPU.

    Anyway if you want to take a look at this towered Falcon auction, it is here.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    I currently have this in my fleabay watches, although not interested in owning it, it is still interesting to see what a bit of history will fetch at the dogs...

    I've always been interested in owning some of the later systems in the Atari ST range. Because I was an Atari ST owner before the Amiga I do still have some interest in the system, even though the ST is very inferior to the Amiga in many respects, the GEM OS especially.

    Out of all I would really like to own an Atari TT though. I remember following its development in the ST magazines at the time and wishing I could afford one. At the time that machine looked really good.

    For an Atari ST is should really be a matt light grey instead of silver.
