The Atari 520 STe I received in the recent epic haul has been upgraded to 4MB – a full compliment of SIMMs have been inserted. It does not make it any faster (Its only Windows that needs more RAM to work faster!)
I have also added an external Protar Progate II 40Mb hard drive with built in ICD controller. It also has an additional 230MB SCSI HDD as drive 2.
The thing boots in no time and allows STOS and other apps to run almost instantly.
On the down side, it squeals like a little piggie, due to its age. I think the drive bearings are on their way out! – Must keep an eye on those.
Pictures to follow!
