From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  Atari ST
  
      A personal computer released by Atari in 1985.
     The "ST" stands for "Sixteen/Thirty-two", from the 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 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.
