Hi

Need some help to get a price range for the computer.

It's a Philips MSX VG 8020 with box and manual.
The condition is better then the average computer from 1984.

Don't know if it's Secam and Pal model /= ( not in my possession for now )

10-15€, IMO. Of course, depends how much someone is willing to pay for it Wink. If it is in box and with manual, then some collector might pay a bit more depending on condition. I read that it is with box and manual... well, 25-40€, I'd say. Someone might disagree Wink

Btw., does the VG8020 have a cartridge connector? Or perhaps even two? Can't find one in the pictures, but I'd think they didn't make an MSX without cartridge connector Smile.

In the Netherlands 10-15 euro if it's complete. Outside the Netherlands probably more. Is it the version on the old-computers.com website ? This version is a bit rare. The most common type has a different color.

Don't seem to be the one on old computers, this one is black and the "top" ( where the cartridge connector's are ) is grey.
http://www.datasalen.se/Utstallning/Data/Philips/bild/phd113.JPG It's supposed to look like this.

But the computer also seem to be complete with its cassette memory unit ( can't find the word right now ) or what you want to call it.

Some more random pics of it ( OBS! This is just a similar one, not mine )

That's the normal common version. The tape-recorder is probably worth 5-10 euro's in the Netherlands. Outside Spain/The Netherlans you probably can get a little more money.

If the keyboard is like that it's the PAL version, SECAM didn't have an extra key right of the right shift key.
