Dick Smith VZ300

The Dick Smith VS200 (1983) and VS300 (1985) were licienced rebrandings of the VTech Laser 200 and VTech Laser 310 computers and were predominantly sold in Australia and New Zealand.

Functionally the VS200 and VS300 were almost identical bar the 200 sporting 8 kilobytes of RAM and the 300 boasting 16 kilobytes.

The other main difference is that the VS200 had a horrible, rubber, 31 key keyboard with the right Shift key instead being the Space key. It did not have a Space Bar in the the more common, lower central position.

In contrast the VS300 had 32 spring loaded keys, the right Shift key where it should be and a Space Bar.

A number of periperals were sold for the computers including (but not limited to) a floppy disc drive, joysticks, tape drive and RAM expansions.

Both the VS200 and VS300 saw decent popularity with enthusiast group preserving interest until the early nineties.
