The MEGA series was intended to be "professional" versions of the 520 and 1040 ST lines. Still running a 68000 8 MHz processor, the MEGA computers could also be connected to a high quality laser printer that was a direct competitor to Apple's LaserWriter (at a significantly lower price). This led to the Atari slogan "Power Without the Price". The machine, like other ST's, could be connected to a color or monochrome monitor and had a matching hard drive unit.

The machine was enhanced by it's use of a battery backed clocked, a Blitter coprocessor which assisted mainly in speeding up graphics and a CPU expansion port. Inside it contains a 720k floppy drive and this mega 4 has 4mb of RAM.
