The NY Times has an article up on retrocomputing (see previous boost) and they have a photo in there "Atari ST in 1985" that just blows my mind...

Knowing that NYT has good archiving practices, I trust that they got this photo in 1985 and the GEM looks like 1.0, so this was probably an early pre-release ST at a trade show.

WHAT is that monitor? I was deep into the Atari ST back then, and I've never seen this before. There was an Atari monitor with a built-in floppy drive???

@readsteven Thanks! How had I never heard of that before? I guess Atari never even brought it over to Germany back then...
