Well, thanks to @craigmaloney hipping me to a source, a known good STacy will be joining the makerspace

@djsundog this looks cool as hell. you'd be escaping the matrix in no time with this

@ajroach42 @djsundog Such handsome machines, even though the STacy has the dubious distinction of being the first laptop in history to have its battery door glued shut.

@kelbot @ajroach42 @djsundog in an alternate timeline laptops have removable mechanical keyboards

@th @kelbot @ajroach42 @djsundog in another alternative universe I can use my notebook monitor as monitor of a phone or desktop

@ajroach42 @djsundog Although this was allegedly released it is virtually unobtanium...I suspect a few units leaked through a breach between this existential realm and another better more advanced one.

Thin, light, power efficient, built in hard drive up to 120MB in *1991*... a time I was still rockin' a chonky 5.25" 40MB MFM unit in my DOS desktop

It's a shame Atari failed despite itself.

@djsundog I always think of Lara Flynn Boyle

But the Atari Stacy was super cute, just 2-3 years too early for the battery tech.

@djsundog @theruran The Stacy was kinda cool in a 1988-industrial-architecture kind of way. 😅

Only got to play with one for a few minutes back then… the lack of reasonable battery life made it a non-starter from what I remember.
