Toshiba
HX-10

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.

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.

This MSX computer is also known as "The CPC MSX" because its keyboard has the same colors in its keys as the CPC has (red, blue, green and black).

This model was my first experience with MSX. My father bought it in 1985. When I was three, I tried to play Shark Hunter with it, but I really couldn''t. I also thought that the BASIC-compiler was a word-processor. My father used to produce digital music with it, but he didn''t bother to save his work to cassettes every evening and mostly the computer was turned on overnight. In 1990 overheating had damaged the computer''s motherboard and service couldn''t repair it anymore. I give minus to it''s integrated power supply, but otherwise it was a good computer.

Blimey - I loved my HX-10 when I was a kid. Was a quantum leap upgarde from my 1K ZX81! Had tape games (Level 9 adventures, mostly) and a couple of carts (Konami Time Pilot, for one). The UK ad campaign included the anoyying wireframe bloke ("Allo Tosh, got a Toshiba?") who seemed sooo cool at the time. Came with a free tape game based on the wireframe bloke - no idea what you had to do, just collected stuff. MSX basic was easy, as was creating sprites. Swore I would be a programmer. Left school '86, didn't program a thing until about 2002...
