Let's see... You've got the 2600's basic design (that was also used for the 7800), the 5200's vented design, the Jaguar's "Chinese structure" design, the Lynx's flat and curved lip design.

Which one is your favorite?

Nah, you gotta pick one or the other, not both.

I think the Jaguar looked coolest out of the list.

Cosmetically I just like the flat-out basic old 2600 cartridge with the silver trim on the front end and the cartridge name in all lower caps. But I liked the Telesys ones too, with the kind of "hook" at the front as well (whatever you'd call it).

The original 400/800 cartridges that were brown with gold lettering that look like electric razors.

I've always been impressed with the 400/800 marketing and design, but then, that's all I collect and use in the 8-bit Atari computer realm.
