Basicaly,...which one is the smallest model?, usually the MSX2 and higher models are bigger (NMS8235! oO); s I guess the smallest will be a MSX1...

Edit:

...and the OCM doesn't counts...Tongue

The Toshiba HX10 is a little one: 370 x 245 x 60 mm / 2,8 kg

maybe Spectravideo SV-318 and SVI-728 too...

I guess the CASIO PV7 is the smallest MSX around... But other CASIOs are also very small.

It's Not the Size that Matters, it's how you use it Wink

Wow!, smaller than a centrino mobile! Big smile

...but, hey!, the Casio PV-7 it's the only one MSX with 8Kb RAM, that's why it weights so little...Hannibal

Well, then which is the biggest one?

Maybe some pictures of the smallest & largest machines here. For comparing. Tongue

Without separate keyboard, my vote goes to the Philips NMS8235

Now we need to scale the images...

The docking station for the PV-7 is optional, it's not part of the computer. So you can not compare it to the 8235.

About docking stations, as the one shown in the above picture of the CASIO PV7, are there others for MSX computers? CASIO has several of them, but did other manufacturers create docking stations for specific MSX models?

SVI produced docking stations too, but for the SVI 8XX series (non-MSX).

About the biggest MSX, I don't know. But regarding the most heavier, I'm pretty sure that the winner is the good'n'old SONY HB-700! Metal casing rulez Tongue
