• World's First Portable Color Entertainment System.

In 1989, Atari released a second version of the Lynx with a number of improvements including an extra hour of battery life, a sharper LCD screen, a button to switch off the backlight (to save on battery power when games are paused), a Power LED (it blinked when the battery was low) and rubber grips on the back, all encased in a smaller more rectangle-looking black casing. The Lynx II was backward-compatible with all Lynx games and was later advertised as being able to communicate directly with the upcoming 64-bit Jaguar. ~ TECHNICAL SPECS: CPU: Dual 16-bit custom CMOS-Mikey and Suzy (16MHZ/custom CPU on its own is 8-bit) RAM: 64KB DRAM Colors: 4096 (16 simultaneous per scan line) Resolution: 160x102 pixels Screen: LCD 82.55mm x 47.75mm (88.9mm/3.5" diagonal) Sound: 8-bit 4 channel (mono for Lynx, stereo for Lynx II) Game Media: 2MB (16Mbit) cartridge Power: 4 hours for Lynx/5 hours for Lynx II (6 AA batteries)
