The Atari 2600 Darth Vader Model is a four-switch model of the Atari 2600 with the woodgrain finish on the front of the unit replaced with an all-black front bar, which gives it the name "Darth Vader". It is also the first model of the system that bears the name "Atari 2600", whereas previous models were called the "Atari Video Computer System".
