Originally announced in 1987, the Atari Stacy was released to the public in December 1989. It was the first portable Atari ST computer and was available in three different configurations:
- Stacy: 1MB RAM, 3.5" floppy disk drive
- Stacy 2: 2MB RAM, 3.5" floppy disk drive, 20MB SCSI hard drive
- Stacy 4: 4MB RAM, 3.5" floppy disk drive, 40MB SCSI hard drive
The 12 C-cell batteries it was designed to run on proved to be insufficient for running longer than about 15 minutes. Coupled with the 7Kg weight, the Stacy was not a great commercial success. Around 35,000 units were shipped, and the model was discontinued in 1991.
Date: 9th December 1989
