I picked this computer up from the side of the road where it had been dumped along with some old suitcases and typewriter parts. Unfortunately it was raining at the time and the 130XE already had a lot of water inside. I completely disassembled the 130XE and cleaned most of the dirt off the casing and left all the parts out of the case for a month or so to dry off. I've now reassembled it and it's awaiting testing. I didn't find an AC adapter with the 130XE but I'm informed that a AC adapter for a 800XL should work with this.

26-09-2004 - I've been able to test this out using the PSU from my Atari XEGS and to my surprise have found it still works. I've successfully played Lode Runner from cartridge, but won't be able to test out the driver interface until I pull some more of my Atari gear from storage.
