I don't know how many, but it's nice to share thoughts. I'd say about 50.000 ST turboR and 30.000 GT turboR computers have been sold. It's a wild guess Smile

Sounds like really low numbers if you take into account a custom chip (the S1990) was created specially for the Turbo-R. Or is that 2 (if you also count R800) ? No wonder these things were (& still are) so damn expensive! Sad

For anyone taking a shot at this: "citation needed" - sources, where did you get the numbers from, or base your estimate on?

In total, 5 million MSX computers were sold worldwide (i read it on the internet).
The turbo-r is only sold in Japan. I don't know how many people life back in the 90 in
Japan.. but say 125.000.000..

If you say 80.000 turbo-r total.. then it's only about say between 0,6 % and 1% of the population
in Japan.

80.000 is between 1% and 2% for all msx that where sold..if 5 million is correctly..

I don't kown how populair the turbo-r where in Japan back in the 90's...
LOL!

Maybe is a good idea to setup some extra text field or some list boxes in the My Account menu.
Then msx users give there MSX configuration.
