The Dragon 32 and Dragon 64 are home computers built in the 1980s. The computers are similar to the TRS-80 Color Computer (CoCo) and were made for the European area by Dragon Data Ltd in Swansea. The two models difference is the amount of memory, 32k and 64k in their respective models. The Dragon is built around the Motorola MC6809E processor running at just 0.89 MHz! It used an advanced 8-bit CPU design, with some limited 16-bit capabilities.
