HOW TO UPGRADE YOUR ATARI 520 ST
If you're an Atari 520 ST owner who would like to upgrade to a 1040, then I can offer the following advice. There is no need to exchange your 520 for a 1040. There are only two fundamental differences between the 520 and the 1040 - the available memory and the disk drive. (The Atari operating system works out for itself how much memory it has available and adjusts accordingly.) To upgrade, you can either exchange the internal single density drive for a double density version or buy an external double density drive to supplement the present internal drive, which is what I did. It's never a bad thing to have that extra storage capacity available. It also means that you don't lose the ability to plug the 520 into a television (via the Atari's standard TV phono socket), which the 1040 doesn't have for some strange reason.

There are a number of companies who will perform the 512K RAM upgrade. Most upgrades involve adding extra RAM chips to the board. The 520 STFM has space available for the extra RAM on its memory board. Older machines have to have the new RAM chips soldered on top of the original chips, piggy-back style, with a flying lead soldered to the chip select pin. This is a horrible practice but often the only course of action available. Fear not, there is help at hand. Several companies will be marketing 'solderless' (ie. plug-in) memory upgrade boards for the ST that can increase the available RAM to 2 Megabytes. Watch the press for details.
