The HX-10 was a classic MSX 1 computer with no special feature... But it was one of the first MSX computers to be exported outside Japan. It met a good success in UK where it can still be found in flea markets and boot sales...
Apparently there were several models of the HX-10 (D, DP, DPN, F, E and S) depending on the country they were sold, but it's not clear what's the difference between them so far... The HX-10 DPN and F had a Scart video output instead of RF/composite outputs, and the HX-10S had only 16 kb RAM.
In its native country, the HX-10 was also named Pasopia IQ to fit in the Pasopia family developped by Toshiba.
