This is the Japanese original of the Sony HB-G900AP, right?

I assume not. G900-series rear panel has quite different amount of connectors and also layout differs. Double RAM as default in AP-model as well.

Well, it looks a lot like the HB-G900P, but then Japanese and with more RAM. But on the other side, as you said, the backside is different. It doesn't seem to have the RS-232C, no REF in no sound IN.... The G900 is a league of its own, apparently.

The options on the back look similar to the F700, except for the cartridge slot and expansion-area of course. And the power cable+keyboard already gives it away as Japanese Wink Too bad my MSX budget is low a.t.m. Good luck selling this beautiful machine Smile

That M key looks funny. Is there something special about the M and this machine?
I also wonder why Sony (and others?) made keyboards with more than one colour for the letters. Anyone who knows why that might be? I've seen a few computers having that and found it strange... More pretty than ugly actually.

Saving money for another computer right now, so I've to skip on this one. Seeing all the computers Daniel sells I realize we missed out on quite some pretty machins back in the day.

Well spotted! Looks like that M-key is not original.

Although this is a very nice machine and a fair offer, it seems that the keyboard is a HB500 one? I don't remember a 900Genlocker with a HitBit logo. But this is my favorite Sony keyboard, the only one with a colored logo.
Edit: I'm wrong, sorry. There has been 900's with HitBit logo.

The computer is Japanese imported arrived first without any keyboard. I managed to get one (pretty dificult in these days) and when i got it M Key was missed so I do my best to fixed it. Nevertheless the worst part was to get a keyboard that is not faulty. You know these Sony computers have a lot of trouble with these Keyboards.

I have have three models on my hands of these computers. My own one (of course boxed with their manuals and in black colour) problems with the keyboard that had to be fixed as well, and I payed near 600 euros at yahoo auctions for the sexy baby..... Other one like this unit without keyboard and no way to get any at that time and this unit we are talking about.
Last units I follow on yahoo auctions where very high around 400 euros (computer and keyboard themselves) and not added on the shipping and customs. So thrust me when I say that this baby is for sure it would find a house soon.

regards

What's the type number of the keyboard? For example, my Sony HB-G900P has a KBD-12P keyboard.
