Head to ​ to save 10% off your first purchase of a website or domain using code RMC....The Atari ST was one of the best value micro computers money could buy on release in 1985. The Apple Macintosh, IBM PC, Commodore Amiga and other competitors struggled to beat it on price, at least until they had time to cost reduce and revise their own designs. Today I finally get to meet an Atari ST up close, outside of a computer shop or a sealed bag! And start the process of restoring it so that I might own a pristine Atari ST once again.
