Atari 1040 STF (1986)

Only a few years ago, the speed, memory, and graphics power of the ATARI ST Computer were beyond the dreams of most computer enthusiasts. And today, there is no computer that offers the power and performance of the ST Computer at as reasonable a price.

The ATARI ST Computer System combines the latest microcomputer technology with an easily understood and simple-to-use working environment. There are no obscure commands to memorize, nor complicated procedures to follow. Computer operations are represented by pictures and words on the screen; to operate, you simply point to the item and click the mouse button.

The ST Computer’s operating system, TOS, has been permanently installed inside the computer. Along with ample Random Access Memory (RAM), TOS and ST Computer have the capacity to handle most complex word-processing tasks or the most detailed spreadsheet procedures. In addition, the ST Computer includes a build-in double density ATARI MicroFloppy Disk Drive that can store up to 357,376 (349K) or 726,016 (709K) bytes on each disk, depending on the model you have.

The ST Computer offers extensive computing power and potential, including 512 different colors, three screen-resolution modes, an 80-column display, and expansive memory and disk storage. The ease of adding a hard disk, modem, printer, or music synthesizer greatly enhances the ST Computer’s potential and allows you to adapt it to new and exciting uses.
