This computer was designed as a versatile machine (!), it was supplied with five disks :

- Disk #2 (Games) : Star Trek, Black Jack and Star Wars.
- Disk #3 (Home Accounting) : Budgeting, Checkbook Balancing
- Disk #4 (Small Business Accounting) : Payroll, Inventory, Taxes, Invoicing, Check Printing
- Disk #5 : Blank floppy disk

Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).


My little company was the Australian distributor for the Versatile 2. We used to advertise it by saying that it could be carried by one man! And we knew the man! We sold several but supply dried up when CDS changed hands. Just as well for us as the integrated floppy disc was mounted too close to the power supply and when the gears in the floppy stretched a little over time, (but still in warranty), radiation from the power supply overwhelmed the floppy''s data stream. Grrrr.
