Questions I am regularly asked
What’s the difference between a 520 STE and a 1040 STE? Nothing, except the internal memory specification. From the factory, the Atari 520 STE has 512Kb of internal memory, the Atari 1040 STE has 1Mb of internal memory but the Atari ST for sale with this auction is 1Mb of upgraded internal memory in an Atari 520 STE which originally had 512Kb of memory.
Which modes does this computer support? Low, high and medium resolutions dependent on monitor and cables used.
Can I upgrade TOS (The Operating System)? Yes, for a small fee I can program alternative versions of TOS and TOS languages and fit.
Does this auction include Cubase? No it doesn’t. The Cubase software is still covered under copyright and it is ILLEGAL to sell a copied version of Cubase to anyone without breaking the law under piracy laws. There is a Cubase Lite version I can include free of charge which is a cut down version of the full blown Cubase application.
Can I pick up the Atari? I would prefer to deliver or collect the Atari, dependant on location, due to the fragility of the cases. Although I send the Atari computers out very, very well packaged using a reputable courier (I don’t use myHermes for anything fragile), it is also beneficial to show the Atari working, with a demo, so the buyer is happy with the computer and how to use it.
Does the computer come with anything? No, the auction shows an Atari St unit only so please do not assume it comes with a mouse, joystick, software, box, disks etc unless otherwise advertised. I will always reduce multiple purchases bought at the same time and combine postage.
Are you reputable? Yes, I have been upgrading and working with Atari computers for over 25 years. I am also part of the Atari demo scene community, so care about the community. It’s not just about making money!!
Why do you charge so much? It takes hours to refurbish these units properly. You can be rest assured that you will receive a top quality, lovingly refurbished item ready for use.
Where do you ship? Internationally, except South America, Russia (unless tracked and buyer takes ALL responsibility of carriage) and Africa.
Do I have any Falcon’s or Falcon spares for sale? No. I wish I owned such items, and if I did, they would not be for sale.
If you’re buying from outside the European Union, please contact us before purchase to confirm delivery costs as eBay’s shipping zones do not match ones for my courier for some countries.
We have over 20 years of experience in the Atari ST computer line, from refurbishing to programming, to the scene and in the business and the leisure sectors, starting off by running our own Public Domain library in the 1990s! So, please buy with confidence!
