WHAT WOULD THAT MAX BE. 2. WOULD THRER BE ANY ON LINE INTSTRUCTIONS FOR THE JOB? 3. HOW SCARCE ARE THE PARTS? THANX -- I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the POWER of God unto SALVATION! * Paul Allwood bd891@Cleveland.Freenet.edu **** Answered by Michael Current, aa700: 1. The largest amount of memory in an 800XL that I've heard of is the 4 Meg upgrade from Newell Industries. My American T.V. catalog lists this upgrade, minus RAM chips, for $42.50. 2. Yes! There are a number of memory upgrade instructions located here in the Atari SIG. Look in the Atari Library, on the Misc. Information board. 3. I don't know for sure, but I would expect the upgrade parts are fairly easy to obtain. Hope this helps!
