The Atari XE Game System was virtually identical to the Atari 65XE computer. Only the marketing was different. Early versions of the XEGS shipped without a keyboard; the keyboard was available separately. Later, the system was bundled with a keyboard.
There are frequent arguments between Atari afficionados as to why Atari marketed the XEGS and 65XE separately.
