The Sony HB-900AP. But the keyboard sucks (at least, now it does, when it worked it was a great keyboard)

I like the 700P the most as a gaming console (everything at the front), but my favourite MSX probably is my 8245 which I abused heavily in the early 90s.

the 8245 is a very neat MSX indeed. Everything about it is right.

My former 8250 in pc-case.
Stupid thing to die on me and stupid me to sell it instead of fixing it
- 7MHz (with LED display showing the actual speed)
- Dos2.something
- 512K
- 192K
- Novaxis SCSI 20+40MB
- Moonsound (256K) (built in/output on the back)
- FM-Pac (7MHz) (built in/output on the back)
- SCC (built in)
- Musicmodule (256K/7MHz) (built in/output on the back)
- Gouda Slotecpander on the bottom of the case containing the musicchips)
- A big Tweety painted on one of the sides


Ah well... Got a standard 8250 now, which is gonna rule in a while with just a Moonsound in one slot...

My dream machine would be a pimped CX5MII with 128K VRAM, 1MB RAM and V9958. I have the parts, but the idea of having to wiggle a soldering iron within the Yamaha rags my nerves Wink

never quite understood the adjustable keyboard on the 8245...seems a bit pointless,changing an angle of 2 degrees Wink
