Internal expansion on the Atari 800 was limited to the four internal card slots shown above, positioned beneath a removable panel above the cartridge ports. Atari sold user-friendly "Memory Modules" (available in 8KB and 16KB sizes) that could be inserted and configured to a maximum RAM capacity of 48KB in three slots. The slot closest to the keyboard was always reserved for 10KB of ROM containing the simple but necessary Atari operating system.
