SubjectHelp identify old computer Reply to this message

I'm trying to dig up some info on an old computer I had. I'm 90% positive it was made by Atari and it had a black and orange color scheme. A keyboard was built into the case and it had a cartridge slot (I think on the top of the system?). There was at least one joystick port. The joysticks were rectangular in shape and had a single rectangular button on the base. There may have been a separate floppy drive, but I think I'm confusing that with another old computer I had.

The only game I remember playing was Pole Position, and that was on a cart. The games came in big black plastic clamshell cases. I had a few of them, but I remember the rest just being generic space shooters.

Google has turned up lots of info on Atari computers, but I haven't had any luck with pictures to identify my system. Any of you guys know what system it was?
