The Atari ST is a line of personal computers from Atari Corporation and the successor to the Atari 8-bit family. The initial model, the Atari 520ST, had limited release in April–June 1985 and was widely available in July. It was the first personal computer with a bitmapped color GUI using a version of Digital Research‘s GEM from February 1985. The Atari 1040ST, released in 1986 with 1 MB of RAM, was the first home computer with a cost-per-kilobyte of less than US$1. “ST” officially stands for “Sixteen/Thirty-two”, referring to the Motorola 68000‘s 16-bit external bus and 32-bit internals. The system was designed by a small team led by Shiraz Shivji. Alongside the MacintoshAmigaApple IIGS, and Acorn Archimedes, the ST is part of a mid-1980s generation of computers with 16- or 32-bit processors, 256 KB or more of RAM, and mouse-controlled graphical user interfaces.- Information from Wikipedia.
