A personal computer released by Atari in 1985.

The "ST" stands for "Sixteen/Thirty-two", from the [[Computer Dictionary/Motorola 68000|Motorola 68000]]'s 16-bit external bus and 32-bit processor. The original 520ST model had an external floppy drive and power supply whereas the 1040ST had them built-in. The 520 and later 520STFM came with 512 KB of RAM, the 1040 had 1 MB. Several upgraded models followed, up to the 1993 [[Computer Dictionary/Motorola 68030|Motorola 68030]] based Falcon.

The ST was the first home computer with built-in MIDI ports and plenty of MIDI software. A wide range of other software from office to games was also available.
