I wondered if anyone else here had had one! My first was a ZX-81, but I got the Dragon 32 as the waiting list for a Spectrum 48 was too long for me when my parents bought me a new computer :P

6809E based IIRC - and I remember being able to POKE an address to double it's speed (this only worked on some machines)

This machine has such an ardent fan base after the decline of Dragon Data (a Welsh company) and Dragon User Magazine went on for years - I still think I have a full set of them!

Who can forget that AWFUL black on green text background it was grim.. and only black and white graphics at the highest resolution..

My favourite cartridge was the one that gave you a proper 80x25 text screen and allowed you to have 'proper' lowercase letters!

My girlfriend is now laughing at me for being nostalgic about computers :(
