I got a green one. So if you will get a red one, we can just swap them. I don't care about the color or confession.

I started building a case. The housing contains a power supply and an active USB/PS2 converter. The keycaps are 3D printed and can be used for many applications, because the tiles can be easily exchanged. I did without the external cartridge slots: a keyboard computer was more important to me than many connections.

Not finished yet, I will keep on going...

I finally got some time to play with my SX-1. First thing a noticed I cannot use the power button. When applying power it immediately starts. Pressing the power button does nothing...

What tricks are needed to make a bootable uSD card? I have created a microSD card with MSXDOS/DOS2 but the system does not boot from it

What is the proper way to prepare a microSD for the SX-1? Specific dipswitch settings needed?

edit: got it to boot to DOS2 after adding 'MSXDOS2.SYS'. What is needed for Nextor support? NEXTOR.SYS is on the disk but does not get started.

Nice idea to use the touchpad, zett!
I added a monitor in the same design to the SX1:
