   Anyone know where I can get a new ribon
for my 1025 printer ? Also what is suposed
to be the big problem with the 1200xl,
I kind of like mine, in spite of the fact
some of my games do not want to run right.

Most of the unique features of the 1200XL are described in the 8-Bit
Computer Description text file (go atari8, 2).  The 1200XL's Operating
System is indeed unique among the 8-bit Ataris, resulting in some
compatibility problems.  Also, the SIO port does not supply a power line
as the other 8-bits do.  

However, it also has some unique advantages, such as the four Function
keys, and the best keyboard of any of the 8-bit Atari computers.
