According to a report fron CNET which cited an email from Atari that they sent out today to consumers, the home console will be available to pre-order this Thursday. Since its official reveal in July, the Ataribox has been spotted in two variants, a wood-like appeal or a black and red modern finish.
The Ataribox will be featuring Linux and a custom AMD processor, making it usable for both mid-range PC titles as well as classic Atari games. It has been reported by the Verge that Atari plans on selling the console at a price range between $250 and $300 making it quite an affordable pick up for any fan of the old Atari games.
