Dick Smith
Cat

The Cat was a rebadged version of the Laser 3000, made in Hong-Kong.

It was partially compatible with the Apple II computer in its basic version, but quite fully compatible when the Apple II emulator cartridge was inserted.

It ran Apple DOS 3.3 operating system or CP/M 2.2 with an optional Z80 card.

Thanks to Murray Moffatt for information and pictures.

This was the first computer I owned - was an amazing experience being able to play the original Sub Logic Flight Simulator despite being limited to a black and white monitor with almost no graphic capability
