Atari STacy Laptop (see specifics)
The Brewing Academy presents:
Working and ready for your kind ministrations!
The STacy was a portable version of the Atari ST
The computer was originally designed to operate on 12 standard “C” cell/R14 for portability. When Atari realized how quickly the machine would use up a set of batteries, they simply glued the lid of the battery compartment shut. HOWEVER, this particular Stacy does NOT have the lid glued shut, you can open it up and, if you **really** want to, add the hardware to use batteries!
The Stacy was a global project, design work was carried out in the Sunnyvale HQ, Cambridge UK, final PCB board layouts where produced by Atari in Japan, which is where the first units were manufactured, with final manufacturing occurring in Taiwan.
The distinctive sculptured charcoal-gray case was designed by Ira Velinsky — Atari's chief Industrial Designer.
This is an Atari Stacy LST-1124 . This unit is Serial Number A107 1000076
It originally came with 1MB RAM, 720k internal floppy, and an internal 20MB hard drive
NOTE: The internal Hard drive is STILL installed and can be heard spinning. However, the The nice foam seal has decomposed into goo that contaminates the media and leaks out of the case.I t is in almost every Falcon and Stacy ever made unless someone changed the hard drive to another brand. I have cleaned up most of it, but you really should remove and replace the hard drive. The electronics are in there to run any compatible drive.
