Re- HI TO ALL!

I have new questions for you:

- I 've seen two PANASONIC MSX TURBO-R ST on e-bay :

ARE THEY A GOOD PURCHASE?

on internet i'v seen that it has 256KB RAM, 128KB VRAM : IS IT EASY TO TO
EXPAND THE MEMORY to 512 Kb so IT WOULD BECOME a TURBO-R GT?

- I've seen also a PANASONIC MSX 2+ A1 WX VRAM on e-bay:

on Internet i'v seen that it has 256KB RAM, 128KB VRAM ,is IT EXPANDABLE?

WHAT MODIFICATION ARE POSSIBLE TO DO ON THIS MODEL?

- WHICH IS THE BEST PURCHASE, TURBO-R ST or MSX 2+ A1 WX?

- DOES EXIST IDE INTERFACE FOR THESE MODELS?WHERE DO I BUY IT?

Now bye and thanks for all!

Depends on the price and the amount of money you're willing to spend.

on internet i'v seen that it has 256KB RAM, 128KB VRAM : IS IT EASY TO TO EXPAND THE MEMORY to 512 Kb so IT WOULD BECOME a TURBO-R GT?

There are more differences between the ST and the GT than the amount of memory. See the Ultimate MSX FAQ

- I've seen also a PANASONIC MSX 2+ A1 WX VRAM on e-bay:

WHAT MODIFICATION ARE POSSIBLE TO DO ON THIS MODEL?

You can always put in more RAM into virtually every MSX. More VRAM (192k) is possible, too, but rather pointless since there is close to zip software out there using that extra VRAM.

What other modifications would you like to perform? Case mod? Blinkenlights? Coffee machine? Nuclear power plant? If you've got the skills, anything goes! ;)

- WHICH IS THE BEST PURCHASE, TURBO-R ST or MSX 2+ A1 WX?

It again depends on the price. A 2+ for $10 is definitely a better buy than a tR for $1000. OTOH, if the price diff is not too much, I'd go for the tR.

- DOES EXIST IDE INTERFACE FOR THESE MODELS?WHERE DO I BUY IT?

Sunrise sells an IDE interface, which should work on almost every MSX2, 2+ and tR. Again: read the Ultimate MSX FAQ
