First yes vote for you on this score.  Never heard of this Atari system before, frankly.  I'm surprised at how good the graphics look, since the number is lower than 2600.

@DuggerVideoGames:

The reason for it's superiority is that it was made as a computer and not simply a game system. It was considerably more expensive. In fact several times the cost of the 2600 when initially released in 1979.

The 5200 is practically a 400 computer, the lower line of Atari computer to the 800, but without keyboard and with altered controller and cartridge ports.
