|This is a computer I would love to get my hands on someday. It is the Atari STacy, a portable computer. As you can read by the specifications it is not the most current system and is not able to connect to the modern internet (unless somewhere a dial-up internet is still out there – or a device can be connected to do such). I am wanting the 40mb (yes, NOT gb but mb) or higher hard drive capacity instead of the 20mb version. Some sources say that this is still available from $799.00 and up, I haven’t really searched for it.
The specs listed below were copied from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atari_STacy with edits done by me on my dashboard for my blog software (WordPress – http://www.wordpress.org).

Hi there, this is my first blog posting…I hope to keep this up to date as best as I can but there is no guarantees. I will post topics from what I like in my own life, what I see online or what I would like to see. Just for your information, this is my world and how I relate to it. I will post my opinions and if they don’t agree with yours you can either accept that they are MY OPINION or you can not read it anymore. I accept your viewpoints just as your opinions as well. I am not here for debates on which opinion is correct or not. I also don’t want any flame wars between readers of this also.
