i assume the tano dragon 64 is completely compatible with the dragon 32 software that my dad wrote boxes of cassettes full of.
Would get a dragondata ltd dragon 32/64 from the uk but they are much harder to find even on ebay and more expensive than a brand new tano dragon 64.
Yes, the only difference between the 32 and 64 is that the 32 has 32K of memory and the 64 has 64K of memory, as well as a serial port. There's zero benefit as far as I know to owning a 32, other than its collectibility. If you want to actually use the system, the 64 is the logical choice.
Here in North America there is still a ready supply of Dragon 64's, naturally the NTSC version. You can easily get a new or close to new complete in box unit for around $50. Finding software is rather trickier, but with patience, I've been able to build up a small collection on cassette and cartridge.
Due to various circumstances, I ended up with five new Dragon 64 units, including one with upgraded capabilities. I also have a modified Radio Shack (CoCo) disk interface that works with the Dragon.
They're very interesting systems, but really only of value to a hardcore collector, as it's extremely technologically similar to the Radio Shack Color Computer series, which are far more desirable choices to collect for, especially here in North America.
