Wow, that's pretty cool, and the ST's heritage is plain to see here.
Collector of old Atari things:
800XL + Ape Warp mod, 2x 1010 cassette, 1050 + Happy mod, 65XE (128k) & XC12, SIO2SD, 2600jr, 7800 and Lynx II
Atari 520ST (1Meg) + Gotek, 1040STFM + Vortex ATOnce + Gotek, 1040STF long button floppy, 4160 STE with Gotek and ROM switcher, 4160STE with 32Mhz booster, ROM switcher and CosmosEx, not to mention various bare ST boards for testing including a PAK 68/2 :)
Plus the rest..
Amiga stuff, Mac stuff, Sinclair stuff etc...

Nice!

But to be honest: I like the XLs design better... and it clearly had the superior keyboard. Rivals even modern Cherry MX Browns in my opinion :ugeek:

Yeah, XL has a much better keyboard, XE is quite rubbery.

My XE has worn well though, and all the better for a clean and upgrade to 128K:
