Laser 100 was a TRS-80 copy, unlike the 200 In the 200 the ROMs are changed substantially and the memory locations are different. The extra commands equivalent to level II Tandy Basic on the 200 (which are in the extra 8 kb of the BASIC ROM) are different and were coded by VTech, they are not direct copies. The 100 afaik was not sold outside of the far east because it would violate Tandy''s copyrights. BTW, is there any reason why the VTech Creativision (aka Dick Smith Wizzard) is not listed ? They were a lot more common than the Laser 100.

There was a RAM extension module, which extended the memory by 16KB. It was a quite bulky unit to be plugged into the Laser computer. The price was about 160€ (for 16 KILObyte!!!!)

I owned a Laser 110. As far as I remember it had 4KB of memory.
