Did anyone here ever have an Atari 7800?

I did not, but looking back, I regret not buying one. I was just a kid back in 1988, and I sold my Atari 2600 and saved enough money to buy an NES. Which I suppose was the best decision at the time.
Still, today, I understand the 7800 came out just before the NES, and it had some good games and arcade ports on it. Some of which are more fun to play than the NES versions. (Although the NES had A LOT more games available for it.)
But the 7800 was compatible with Atari 2600 games (hundreds available). And in 1990, my dad's boss bought a bunch of that stuff at a garage sale and gave it to us. Go figure.
I have been considering buying a 7800 and some games (weren't only 70 games made available for it?)
