Oooh -- what's the story behind that machine?

And the million dollar question -- does it work? :)

It belonged to a former musician who in the 90s switched to the PC and left the Atari in a storage room, without covering it with a cloth or anything.
The answer of the million: yes, it works perfectly (including the internal hard disk of 40 Mby).
