Thanks. No waiting for floppy though - notice the SD card reader under the joystick. High speed SIO mode is super fast.

This page needs a lot of expansion: [wiki]Atari 800[/wiki] — including positive photographic identification of the Stackpole and Hi-Tek keyboards, and an illustration of how they differ from each other to help in the quest to be able to tell them apart without needing branding.
As I said before, this is a thread for oogling, not detailing switches. If you look at the AtariAge thread referenced in the Wiki, I posted switch photos there.
