The Dragon 32 had 32 kilobytes of RAM, while the Dragon 64 had 64 kilobytes. Both computers were based on the Motorola 6809E microprocessor and used a version of the Microsoft Color Basic programming language. They were compatible with the Commodore 64 and had similar capabilities, including the ability to run games and use peripherals such as cassette tapes for data storage. The Dragon 32 and 64 were sold primarily in the UK and other European countries, but were not as successful as other home computers of the time, such as the Commodore 64 and Sinclair ZX Spectrum.
