If you need the Original Box & packing materials to return your 1989 Atari SLM-804 Laser Printer, I've got one left, but it has to go... soon I'm told.

Man, I'd forgotten about their laser printer. I miss my Atari 800XL. It blew two large capacitors on its motherboard 25 years ago and being a kid I didn't know how to fix it so it went bye bye. Was a gift from my 8th grade comp sci teacher. It was my first computer at home. That teacher's probably either dead or close to the end of her life at this point. Wish I could have those back too. :(

Atari is coming back:

I hope they make it and the stuff works as intended.

I think I have a boxed Atari 800XL somewhere in these piles;

That SLM-804 could print Live Video/Screenshots at 8 ppm, it could also drag a cardboard box through & not jam!

PostScript? Sign me up!

Trying to find a PS laser printer doesn't seem to be that easy these days...

My favorite game for the 800XL was Montezuma's Revenge (disk version). Even though I was using the "space age joystick" that was lacking in accuracy, I managed to "beat" the game by being able to beat Level 9 with a fully darkened pyramid. No save states. No save/reload. Just a few lives and I'm dead. Those were the days. :)

I'm sure I'm here much less than you, my Porkstacking friend!

Too much time playing with my Subarus to tinker with my mini!

I think most Brother Laser Printers use PostScript and/or PCL...

BR-Script driver (PostScript language emulation)


To me, emulation is not the real deal.

BTW, how come this stuff has to go? Landlord thingy? I know you well enough to know that anything Atari is usually stuff you wouldn't part with and would have to be pried from your cold, dead hands in the end. :)

I've had to admit defeat, no landlord, no roof, & soon no floor as it's now giving way. :oops: :(

If I had the nerve I'd visit atari.org & ask someone come with a box truck & fill it with Atari HW & SW, wouldn't let me sign in with my old credentials.

I played it regularly on my Atari 800 (GTIA). That was a fun game. Other favourites were Choplifter, Fort Apocalypse, Necromancer, Drelbs, Blue Max, and all the arcade ports. Fun times!
