This was my first real computer. I was a fan of the Apple II. I wanted to play them Chopper, Centipede, Frogger and Zaxxon games. I ordered my unit from Dick Smith Sydney.

Was an exciting moment in my life. The freight arrived from Sydney to Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. My dad bought me the whole kit with the emulator, joystick, drives. I used it with a 14” colour television. Had a great time programming, paying games, composing music with the SOUND command. The CAT side had some special graphics modes and Sound options which were great. Loved those times. Graduated to Amiga 1000 after this.

I wanted a 3000 sooo bad because of its modular design. This picture does not show it with its drive. The drive was detached, so was everything else. I wound up getting a 128. I used to be able to hit ctl-break and read the programming. One fateful day, it all got locked doen and all we saw was code. This infuriated me. It was then I became a hacker. At that very moment.

This was the first computer I owned. Purchased in New Zealand for NZ$1250 through Dick Smith Electronics. Dick Smith Electronics marketed it as the CAT. It was said to be 96$ compatible with the Apple IIe when the "Emulator Catridge" was installed. The documentation I had, claimed that the Emulator Catridge increased memory from 48KB to 64KB.
At the time, a genuine Apple IIe was at least double that price so it represented good value for money. I owned it for about 4 years and it proved to be reliable.

I used to use this computer with an apple II emulator and it worked great. I did have a problem where two wires came undone in the back through wear and tear and if I bumped them together (like hot wiring a car) it would reset the computer. It was great. :)

The word was this company folded due to legal pressure from Apple. Not how true that is thats what I''ve heard though.
