Problem is this: on youtube video, where Mr.Petari demonstrate video playback ( [ Show youtube player ]) on ST (with "overscan", 50FPS, 4096 colors...), you start talking about Amiga 500 harddisk speed. And keep telling that it is possible to get 3.5MB/s on Amiga... ok. nice.
but COMPLETELY ignoring fact that Amiga still would not be able to playback video at 50FPS, in hicolor (like ST does) even if it can transfer 3.5MB/s (quite doubtful with Quantum LP-52 50MB harddisk as you claim at atari-forum) and you fail to understand that image data need to be in chip ram in order be displayed on monitor.

no, he did not take numbers from 10-Q or 10-K.

doh... It is very difficult to talk with you - you made up things from thin air all the time.

Here you can read about Jeremy sources about figures: http://jeremyreimer.com/uploads/notes-on-sources.txt - he did not mention from where he pull number of Atari sales!
Here is Atari Corp. K-10 Form for 1989. (note that Atari Corp was not obligate to fill K-10 before 1989.!): https://archive.org/details/AtariCor...nualReport1989
as you can read THERE is NO sales figure in units, only in $.

Further, in K-10 for 1989. Atari Corp. state:
"Sales of ST and PC products INCREASED by 36%, from $218.1 million in 1987 to $296.5 million in 1988."

and according to Jeremy Reimer Atari ST sales:
1987 - 400.000
1988 - 350.000
Jeremy fail to note increase of 36% from 10-K but instead he DECREASE ST sales for 15% !!!

This bring shadow over Jeremys numbers regarding ST sales!!!
