I'm really excited to have it too! I just got the XEGS in the mail yesterday and it's my first Atari computer. =)

@Jin: it looks good, they gave it to you with the keyboard and light gun? ... my light gun on an old T.V. that I have does not aim very well ... I don't know what the cause might be

Yep! The person who sold it to me had kept it complete in box (minus the manuals). They keyboard is super mushy feeling but works fine, and I haven't had a chance to test the light gun yet but in my experience all the light guns for Atari systems aim a little bit off. I've had a couple from Best Electronics and one XE light gun before this one and they all shot an inch or two to the right of where they should.

I have an Atari XE too, just don't have any games for it yet.  Where do you get a XEGS?  I am impressed to see the original Atari XE Jostick!

I bought it from someone on AtariAge who had it sitting in a storage locker unused for a long time. I just put up a "Want to Buy" ad in the Marketplace section and he contacted me a few days later offering to sell the like-new in box XEGS with keyboard, joystick, and light gun for $125 USD + shipping costs.

@Jin:

Your whole Atari XE bundle with box for $125 plus shipping sounds like an excellent deal!  How about the XEGS, where can I find one to put roms on?

My story on how I got my Atari XE is much different.  About 10 years ago, I got the keyboard, console, cables & cords, and two disk drives from a large Atari lot sale that included the cocktail cabinet version of Asteroids.
