Atari Stacy 2 Laptop (LST-2124)
Serial Number A10A 1001927
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-2124 . This unit is Serial Number A10A 1001927
It originally came with 2MB RAM, Two 720k internal floppies, and NO internal hard drive.
However, it acts and sounds like there is a hard drive in there. I can hear it operating and HDX wants to try and get at it. I would suspect that the drive is NOT RECOVERABLE. However, it does mean that you should be able to put your own in there with little difficulty. (y’know, after the monumental feat of opening the case)
In almost every Falcon and Stacy ever made the stock hard drive was made with a type of Styrofoam seal that decomposed over time. This has NO indication that such decomposition has occurred, which would serve to reinforce the thought that there is an aftermarket HDD in there.
This also comes with an original Atari Stacy box and packing materials. However, the serial numbers do NOT match.
- Atari TOS 1.04
- Real-time clock lithium battery (will need replacing)
- Floppy disk (100% tested & working DSDD)
- ACSI, ACSI internal (same as in Mega STE)
- Trackball (tested & working)
- Keyboard passes all tests, all keys work easily
- Ports (all tested and working)
FDD (external, Drive B)
- Does not come with a power supply.
- We have one of these available for sale separately
- Serial number on box does NOT match STacy serial number
Final Caveat: This system has been tested to the extent noted. However, it is 30 years old and there could be something I have not seen. This unit is sold AS IS.
