This MSX 2 system, is basicaly a Sony HB-F1 with a 3.5" disk drive built-in the case (2DD, 720 KB).
The keyboard is quite complete with a numeric keypad and special keys. There is a hardware PAUSE-button which hangs the computer when pressed. The SPEED-CONTROLLER slider (slow-motion) and the REN-SHA-TURBO slider (auto-fire for both joysticks and spacebar) are nice features for playing games.
Sadly this computer was only sold in Japan, so it's pretty hard to find one nowadays...
We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system,
