Atari Trivia Information / Question:  Do you know what the Atari acronym A.H.C.D. stands for?  It was used on a lot of Atari paper work and Atari labels (identifying the atari products inside the Master cartons of Atari products stacked on pallets) on boxes of Atari 8 bit products in the early to mid 1980 Atari era.  It stands for Atari Home Computer Division.  Back then the Atari Consumer division had the AHCD and VCS (2600) departments only.

Robert M. of MI  "It is amazing, that after 30 years these little 8 bit machines are still going strong and still have a pretty strong following. I have ordered parts and software from Best Electronics dating all the way back in to the 80's.  I really hope you do not decide to suspend Atari sales, that would be a huge loss to the Atari Community.  Every time I visit your site, I find something new, something I did not see before.  I have often wondered what kind of treasures could be found in your warehouse." 

Follow up Comment: Thank you for your continued support of the Atari after all these years.


The Atari CX77 Touch Tablet is an Art and Graphics Controller that is plugged into a Joystick port and designed for use with the Atari 8 bit Computers (400, 800, 600XL, 800XL,1200XL, 65XE, 130XE and XE Game machine).  You can Draw or Trace pictures with the CX77 Stylus, a pen or even your finger.  You have your choice of 8 brush widths with 128 Computer Generated Colors with 8 brightness levels.  Create Automatic Circles, Squares, Discs, Boxes, draw perfect Circles, Squares, Rays and Straight lines, draw a series of Connected Straight lines, Mirror Images, Fill objects, Erase objects, Magnify to eight times normal size any portion of your Atari Touch Tablet Drawings.  Pictures drawn on your Atari CX77 Touch Tablet can be saved to an Atari Cassette or Atari 810, 1050 or XF551 Disk Drive.  You can also load The Popular Micro Illustrator Program drawn Pictures on the CX77 Touch.

  Old Atari 8 Bit Owners will remember the early Kola Drawing Pad with the smaller drawing surface.  The Atari CX77 Touch Tablet was Atari's Answer to the Kola Pad a couple of years latter with many New Improvements over the original Kola Drawing Pad.  The only draw back with the Atari CX77 was when they were released 10 to 15 years ago, they were always in short supply in the US.  Many Atari 8 bit uses never saw one or only saw pictures of them only.   We found these Rare New Atari CX77 Touch Tablets in an Atari Warehouse in Holland.  The labels on the Pallets of them, said they came from the Atari Warehouse in Italy!!  Best Electronics spent the time and money and re-imported then back into our US Warehouse from Holland.  The Atari CX77 Touch Tablet comes with Drawing pad surface Protective Mylar cover sheet (Spare Protective covers are available from Best), Stylus Pen, AtariArtisit Cartridge and 21 Page Owners Manuals.
