8-bit Personal Computer - Dismantled for reference and curiosity
The Dick Smith VZ200 (1983) and VZ300 (1985) were licensed rebrandings of the VTech Laser 200 and VTech Laser 310 computers and were predominantly sold in Australia and New Zealand.
Functionally the VZ200 and VZ300 were almost identical bar the 200 sporting 8 kilobytes of RAM and the 300 boasting 16 kilobytes.
The other main difference is that the VZ200 has a horrible, rubber, 31 key keyboard with the Space Bar located where the Right Shift key usually is. It doesn't have a Space Bar in the central position making any attempt to touch type a re-learning experience.
In contrast the VZ300 has 32 spring loaded / mechanical keys, the right Shift key where it should be and a traditional Space Bar.
A number of peripherals were sold for these computers including (but not limited to) a floppy disc drive, joysticks, tape drive and RAM expansions.
Both the VZ200 and VZ300 saw decent popularity with enthusiast group preserving interest until the early nineties.
