Atari 1040 ST

The Atari 1040 ST

List Price: US $999.99

Release Date: January 1986

The Atari 1040ST was Atari’s 1MB version ST, it also included several new enhancements included a new version of TOS which was ROM based.   It’s new features weren’t a grand leap forward (with the exception of the Blitter which was introduced later) but its increased memory and OS in ROM were a step in the right direction.  However competition from IBM, Apple and Amiga were getting strong by the minute and the 1040ST did not represent as big a leap forward as the others were starting to make with their systems.
