Hello from Sweden

Post by unumlapis » Tue May 14, 2019 10:07 pm

Well, already made some post in the forum and as an old D32 user who recently got into retro computing I couldn't just ignore my first computer, the Dragon 32. And Yes, the Dragon was sold also in Sweden by Datanordic, then again one can discuss whether they should given some extra thoughts about their target group. Clearly didn't attract the kids...

A lot of computer ads used to be like that - super boring now, but presumably it shifted units...

Välkommen till Dragon Archive!

It’s great having new members that enrich and expand our knowledge of the Dragon.

Don’t hesitate to ask anything you may need!

Cheers,

@Sixxie: In general I agree but the above Dragon ad must actually be on the lower end of what dictates a really bad ad. Here is for example the first Dragon ad in Your Computer from August 1982:

@Rob: Thanks You! Well, I got some catch up to do regarding the Dragon.
