About the HK and FF prefixes. I first though that the FF maybe had something to do with Formosa (taiwan)..
But it says made in Japan, so maybe the HK and the FF are for regions/cities in Japan?

HK = hokkaido
FF = fukoaka

just guessing

There's, besides for the fun of it, probably not much use. But maybe, if there's enough serials, some person sees the bigger picture behind them. For example, the Philips Music Modules (NMS 1205) have a serial that starts with HK and on the module it's printed that it's made in Hong Kong. The Philips computers have a serial that starts with FF... Very curious.
Some other manufacturers seem to have an ongoing serial number, look at Sony, where I kinda get the feeling that whatever machine passed through the final stage of assembly got the next free serial... But to make sure, we need more... It might be wiki material if the code is broken Wink

Just a little suggestion: add photos of the actual hardware to the serials. Nowadays many MSX computers are looking somewhat different compared to when they left the factory more than 20 years ago Tongue

They might look worn out, but it's indeed a good idea to place a pic with every model in the list...
Soon I'll update the list again and will see if I can find some suitable pics with them machines...

Not one pic per model, but an actual pic of the machine matching the serial!
