That's still very small. I can't wait until we get a first picture of the casing. Although that doesn't tell a lot, as the GameReader casing changed drastically ^_^

We're only talking about the size of the device here ^_^

Well it shouldn't be bigger than the average existing MSX computer. And having a nice case around it will surely encourage me to buy one Wink.

Well, if it's just some printplate with a few holes in it.. I guess anyone can make a case? Or perhaps get some small case from an electronica-store/computershop?

/me still thinks: 19" rack Smile

So you're putting a PCB the size of a DVD-case into a 19" rack? Sounds like overkill to me. Besides, 19" is highly inconvinient to about every non-musician/webhoster Wink

I think, once again, looking at the quality and coolness of the GameReader design, the One Chip MSX1 casing will (and should) be surprisingly small and cool Wink

I personally think 19" sucks big time...

Well, I wouldn't mind having a 19" CRT/TFT, of course Wink

Msx has a history of cool design,not as dull as c64...look again at the zemmix game consoles or the hb201 (in red white or black).
That is what makes msx stand above mediocre design.
Some MSX Design is timeless...

If it's gonna be a dull design then only hardcore msx fans will notice it,but the rest of the world won't give a horse's ass about it.
Just remember that with the I-mac people suddenly became aware of the hegemony of dull computers and realised they should be nice to look at too.
It's all about looks Smile

"Well, if it's just some printplate with a few holes in it"

isn't any msx if you unscrew the top?
Women are not just there for inner beauty too Wink
