The ATARI XE keyboard turns your XE into a full-fledged computer system!
With the keyboard attached to the console, you can use ATARI BASIC, the XE’s built-in programming language, to create your own programs. And if you're a serious game player, adding the keyboard gives you the option of playing the most sophisticated computer games requiring keyboard interaction.
Along with other add-ons such as a disk drive or program recorder, the keyboard lets you use game and applications programs available on disk and cassette. Now you can take advantage of word processors, database programs, and much, much more—all with your XE system.
