Can you tell the difference?

Post by GroovyBee »

The Coke/Pepsi test.....

Here we have an original Atari Pong 8) :-

And a Binatone console :-

The Binatone is considerably cheaper at 0.05% the price of Pong. Could you tell the difference in the same cabinet? :wink: :lol:. Spent my early years on a Binatone then moved onto the Philips G7000. What was your first console?

Saw one, fully boxed with a load of games at a car boot / market in Arnhem a few years back. Didn't buy it at the time and probably been kicking myself (as has mate as he was also interested in it at the time) - but c'est la vie :)

Oh I wouldn't bother - it was probably shagged anyway. I bought a 1040 STFM motherboard from Clitheroe car boot once and it worked OK for a short while, but had something wrong with it and kept falling over after a bit. Itried switching out the processors from my 512 STFM into it, but that didn't work.. Bit annoying as it was nice to finally have a machine that didn't keep loading all the time.. :(

Yay! I had that. I also had the "programming cart" for it. I was far too young to make good use of it and you couldn't save anything anyway :(.

Just found this site on the G7000 :-

The programming cart (No 9) manual still makes no sense :?. I had no hope as a kid. :lol:

I don't see why not to sell original Atari console, what is certainly rarity, for such price...
Still cheaper than some Marylin Monroe underwear :D
