After blasting somy aliens...

What do computers mean to you?
Do they conjure up images of ‘1984’ and ‘Brave New World’? Or do you think f them as advanced video games?
The subject is shrouded in myth. One or two of which we hope to clear up (with a little help from the Dragon 32). Video games are great introduction to the world of home computer. But there’s more to them than simply saving the universe.

THEY’RE JUST A TOY FOR KIDS
True they can be used as toy. To prove it we’ve produced a wise range of high quality software aimed at the games player. But to use a Dragon simply to play games on is rather like buying a car to listen to the radio.
So what else is there? Well, there’s programming. We’ve even produced some software that’ll help you master the basics. Then there’s Typing Tutor, a program that’s particularly useful on the Dragon 32 thanks to it’s professional quality keyboard. In fact our software range has something for just about everyone, from our Young Learning series right through to Computavoice, a program than can actually make your Dragon speak.

THERE’S NO POINT BUYING ONE NOW
Computers, like anything else, can seem a little daunting if you don’t start right at the beginning. But, basically, they are logical and easy to understand. Especially if you start with a home computer that is logical and easy to understand. Like the Dragon 32. Maybe, though, you want to wait a while. After all computers are advancing all the time. Aren’t they?
True. But there’s no point getting very advanced equipment if you don’t know how to use it properly. Besides the Dragon 32 is a versatile enough and has a large enough memory to be able to cope with all your family’s computing needs for years to come.

YOU HAVE TO SPEND A FORTUNE TO GET A PROPER ONE
The Dragon 32 is a proper computer. As standard it offers a massive memory, together with many functions you’d only expect in a much larger (and more expensive) machine. Yet it will only set you back 175

YOU NEED A SCIENCE DEGREE TO UNDERSTAND THE JARGON
This is where the Dragon really scores. Our handbook was designed to be easily understood (as was the whole machine), even by people totally new to computers. "It is better than most, comprehensive and easy to read." (Thank you Personal Computer World.)
So you won’t have to keep asking the kids how to use it. And as computers begin to play a bigger roles in our lives, so a knowledge of them becomes more important.
Many schools have already recognised this, and computer studies is commonly taught. Mind you it’ll never he a ‘dull’ tag attached to it like other subjects, because computers (especially home computers) are great fun. How else can you save the universe in you own from room?
