Introduced in 1985 as a replacement for the 800XL, the 65XE is the low-end
version of the 130XE. The 65XE is nearly identical to the 800XL in features,
minus the PBI. Many European (PAL) 65XE’s and some late-production North
American (NTSC) 65XE’s include the ECI port. All XE computers also include
the FREDDIE memory management chip.
Normally boots with Atari BASIC (Revision C) enabled; Hold down [Option] on
startup to boot without BASIC.
