Thanks for sharing this 1983 article Alan. I never realized this…

 

“Atari, one of the leaders of the market, has never made a profit in home computers.”

 

The author also talked about the TI and VIC-20 price war. I remember that I wanted a TI-99/4a but it was waaaay too expensive (but more powerful), so we bought the VIC-20.
