A Rare Gem Uncovered? Is an NTSC VZ200 Color Computer (1982) a Reality? (Plus bonus discovery!)

I don't have time to do a thorough analysis (i.e., plugging it in) just now as I need to take care of some pressing Intellivision stuff (since last night I did our taxes), but I seem to have stumbled upon a bit of good luck x2. Even though that luck doesn't involve finding a mass of riches, in the world of retrocomputing, it's still kind of neat. I recently acquired what was purported to be a Dick Smith VZ200, which is the Australian version of the Video Technology (Laser) VZ200. To my surprise, this is an actually an NTSC version, which from all that I've seen, has been pretty much an unknown quantity to this point, at least on the Web. When I get a chance, I'll be doing a thorough analysis of this budget system, but I took a few quick snapshots in the meantime. (read towards the bottom for the bonus bit of good luck)
