Just got my greddy fingers on a 260 ST ....But no power adapter...Need info

Post by Amigabo » Wed, 13 Oct 2004 01:41:04


Was googling around and find that it has 256 or 512 kb ram:-)
That is only made for europe/usa market :-)
It has a 360/720 kb floppy drive , internal or external....:-)
My doesnt have a floppy inside the case....
So I would like some TRUE information about this computer , which TOS it
uses , system specifications etc , because I cant start my own Atari...


TIA

If the drive / power supply is internal then it is not a 260ST. The 260ST
looks like the 520ST, in that it is just the keyboard, the PS and floppy are
External only.

No PSU, no Floppy drive, and no TOS. You need all of these before you
can do anything. Tos for these machines came on a disk.

Coda.

They were remarketed original 520ST machines - as you only had 260K left
after the OS loaded...

I'm sure I saw a prototype 260ST with an inbuilt drive, but mounted in the
left hand side.

There was rumoured to be a 130ST at launch too, but Atari soon realised how
useless such a machine would be....
