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...

I recently found a HX-10 while clearing out a loft. I attached it to my television and started it up. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a tape recorder so I just thought I would have a look at what is there, without any game attached. Basically, what I found is an MSX Basic interpreter which spits out neccessary output from your programs according to what you write. For example:

print "hello world"

gets the obvious output of:

hello world
Ok

However, it is somewhat annoying not being able to save any programs, and finding anything helpful to do with MSX Basic has proven to be an arduous task. Nonetheless, this is a cool retro machine. Enjoy it.
