Does anyone know where I can find a US Atari STacy "laptop" computer? I would love to have one that has 4mb of RAM and at least a 20mb (prefer 40mb or higher)? Thanks :)

Very rare machines. Especially ones in good shape.

 

Watch Ebay and both Atari Age and Atari Forum. You

will find them for sale there occasionally. Keep in mind,

a STacy in good shape will command a price tag in the

$350.00 - 450.00 range unless you just get lucky.

 

I've got one that I've modified quite a bit. I think they

are one of the more interesting Atari models. :)

Two STacy 2's recently sold on ebay in Germany for $521 and $700...

I still need to fix mine, but may end up buying a new motherboard and US keyboard from Brad this year.

The ST Book is far worse...

Someone had one at the Atari Party last year (not working), I think he got it for a song too. Lucky bastard. I'd love to get a STacy, but I can't even land a decent Amiga 500 for less than $400, no way I'm going for a STacy anytime soon.

Just from memory, I think working ST Books in good shape have been going for like

$1000-1200.00 or even higher.

I bought my STacy 4/40 used in 1991 for $400, the price was steeply discounted because the HDD had died. I actually lugged it back and forth to work. Back then, I was the only person at work with my own computer.

Occasionally, during the summer months (at night) when typically my work place

pace slows down a bit, I'll take my STacy. I'm a respiratory therapist at a small

rural hospital and we have our own department away from patient areas and

I can lock the door.

 

I've had a few people see it from time to time and the first inevitable question is:

 

"What the heck is that???"

 

To which I reply, "That my unenlightened friend, is historical magnificence! :)

Oh! I could take mine in! I'll tell them it's for testing our web-app in "alternate non-java environments".
