Notes:

The motherboard used in this system is not an Atari proprietary motherboard it is actually an American Megatrends (AMI) 386XT Series-4. As well as having a NPU socket for a 387 coprocessor upgrade, it is also possible to upgrade the CPU to a 386DX-25. While I have been unable to locate the detailed specifications for the Series-4, it is practically identical to the Series-6.

One of the downsides with this particular motherboard they used is that it has no onboard RAM expansion slots. RAM is all handled through a 32 bit memory expansion card which is limited to a maximum of 2MB when all memory sockets are filled. Any extra memory beyond that requires a daughterboard to be attached to the expansion card however they have proven so far to be quite rare to find.
