The Atari 5200 was introduced in 1982 by Atari as a replacement for the famous Atari 2600.In essence it was an Atari 400 computer without a keyboard, and it soon developed a strong cult following with its library of high-quality games. In its prototype stage, the Atari 5200 was codenamed "Pam" after a female employee at Atari, as were many of their game consoles, e.g. "Stella" (Atari 2600) and "Colleen" (Atari 800). The Atari 5200 came bundled with a track-ball, although Atari spells it trak-Ball.
