When the ST series was introduced in 1985, it was widely reported that, it would either make or break Atari.
From the start, the machine itself was controversial as it was not compatible with either IBM or Apple. 'Power Without the Price' is the memorable sales slogan which accompanied the release of the ST series.
Jack Tramiel decided to make things easy for potential customers by incorporating a version of Gem into the machine, and the Atari ST as we know it was born.
Made in Taiwan.
