A COMPUTER has two separate memory. The first, called ROM (Read Only Memory = Fixed value memory), stores the program that controls the operation of your system, it can be controlled by the user not be changed. The Dragon 32 has a ROM of an impressive size of l6K, and it also includes the built-in Microsoft BASIC, a language that is logical and easy to understand. The second memory, called RAM (Random Access Memory = working or user memory), takes your programs on and used for graphics used. The RAM memory is "volatile", i.e. the content becomes deleted when you are finished. The Dragon 32 has a user memory that is used for average demands


YOU will be amazed at how the Dragon 32 colour used - and how clear and distinct how the 9 colors are. BASIC contains commands for drawing lines, rectangles, circles and arcs.
