Panasonic MSX keyboard films to be reproduced

Paulo Maluf and Vinicius Beltrão are planning to reproduce the often failing keyboard films for certain Panasonic MSX2+ and turboR computer models: the FS-A1FX, FS-A1WX, FS-A1WSX, FS-A1ST and FS-A1GT. The first three being MSX2+ computers, the latter two turboR models. It would be a shame if the keyboard film, contained in these computers, start to break; for the computer can't be controlled anymore. Therefore, provided Paulo and Vinicius get enough production orders, they will reproduce these fragile pieces of hardware. Whenever the quotum of 30 pieces is reached, the production will commence, at a price of about $30,- per piece. Of course the following rule applies: the more orders are sent in, the cheaper it eventually will be. Ordering more than just one copy is advisable as these might never get reproduced again.

In order to purchase one or more keyboard films, join the mailinglist (if you haven't already done so), reply to the message whilst leaving the subject unaltered. As of yet, there's no known order deadline.

It would be better if people could contact directly with Paulo and Vinicius, instead of having to register in the International MSX Mailing list...

you could as well just get a regular MSX2 then (not that I'm against the idea of the OCM), with a decent amount of memory (256kb or more); with that you should be able to run about 90% of the available MSX software pretty easily....
