Short answer is no. Save your money and get an UltraSatan for your STe instead.Ozzy wrote:Also, is there more space in the Mega STE for additions?
Other than an internal HDD there is really nothing to get. Potentially a VME ethernet card but you're more likely to get a cartridge port one.

Mega STE has 2x faster CPU with cache
AtariZoll wrote:There is VME bus too, although not much was produced for it - best known is graph. card .

Ozzy wrote:Thanks DarkLord, I had no idea I was looking at the Mega STE prices, is there a specific price range I should be looking at? I know Best Electronics is overpriced, and the best price I could find is $250 at ST Freakz (And thats not including the UK adapters) I think I'll be going with a Mega STE, best game compatibility(I think) and I might be getting into chiptunes. Maybe I could host a BBS
