I have just got a 130xe computer and I have many Atari 2600
cart. and the 2600 machine.  There are many cart. that I enjoy
playing but I don't want to keep both systems.  Is there any
way I can play my 2600 game cart. on my Atari 130xe computer?

        To the best of my knowledge, 
and that of my associates, nobody has
developed the hardware needed to use
2600 cartridges with the computer line.
That doesn't mean it can't be done, it
just hasn't been.
        Another side to your question
is whether to keep both systems: I 
think you should.  If you are at all
hooked on the computer, you will soon
discover that you really need a good
monitor to make the best possible use
of it.  That will free up your TV for
the games, again.  For now, there's no
rush.  There is no law against hooking
up TWO game switches to the back of
your TV!

         Thanks for asking.
