Dragon 64

The Dragon 64, launched in 1983, was exactly the same computer as the Dragon 32, except that it had 64k RAM instead of 32k, an OS9 operating system and a RS232C connector.
 
Aside from the amount of RAM, the 64 also has an RS-232 serial port which was not included on the 32.
 
A minor difference between the two Dragon models is the outer case colour; the Dragon 32 is beige and the 64 is light grey. Besides the colour and the Dragon 64's serial port (and the model name stickers, of course), the two machines look exactly the same. The Dragon 32 was upgradable to Dragon 64.
 
Our Dragon 64 has been modified to strip the colour burst from the composite TV signal. This results in a much sharper, although monochrome, image.
