For sale is FS A1-GT turbo R. Photo. Fully functional, FDD and keyboard working well, all connections tested okay, refurbished by professional. Browning is moderate considering the age. The FDD is original and not beltless.
I attach an RCA video cable and three of the manuals. MSX-VIEW manual is lacking. I will scan one if you are really serious but appreciate you don't ;) Not including the manuals saves weight and shipping.
The price starts from 75000 Japanese yen, auction style. Please post your desired price, I will conclude at Sep 22 12:00 noon Japan standard time (7 hr ahead WET, 12 hr ahead BRT).
If you think you have seen cheaper at Yahoo Auction or elsewhere, I tell you they
1. ALWAYS have broken FDD unless repaired, 2. 80% of the time have unworking keys, 3. often come without any video connection cable, 3. seller usually don't own a diskette to test with, and 4. some of them don't even power on.
Fully functional piece sells really high.

There are two methods of shipment. I do NOT accept surface shipment which causes troubles and keeps me waiting for months.
a. EMS. Look for prices around 5.0 kg here. Cheaper than b. but the custom of your country may charge heavy import tax and/or cause delay.
b. Kuroneko Yamato. Choose your country and look for 120 size price. It's pricey but unlike postal service they know HOW TO EVADE the import tax. Really! (of course they sometimes fail, but seldom allow rip off.) And they're fast. In your country, private courier services such as UPS deliver. Kuroneko don't deliver to Brazil :(

If none of you buy, it's ok. I'll sell it elsewhere.

I accept payment is by Paypal, with necessary fees added. And I can wait some time if you cannot pay right immediately.

I think € 620 is a veey reasonable starting price for a turboR GT.

It's still on my bucketlist, the missing item... But I think it's gonna remain like that...
Eventhough it's not a lot of money for an MSX computer like that, but it's a lot of money to spend... On anything...
I do hope it gets a nice new owner who's gonna be happy with it Smile

I didn't know the serial number indicates the month of production. And as mentioned in that forum, 75000 is way below the initial retail price 99800, though actual market price had been lower.

Several people outside this forum are interested in the FS-A1GT so after the tomorrow's deadline it might go to them.

If there are several people interested, what is the actual offer?
If it's an auction style, this should be visble, else the auction doesn't makes sense
It shouldn't matter whether it's in or outside of the forum

If at least one of you shows interest within two hours, I'll sell the GT to you, not to them.

Since my earlier post caused misunderstanding, I extend the deadline to Sep 23 0:00 JST, 10 hr 49 min from now. Please keep in mind 75000 is lower than I paid for; this sales is my small commitment to the MSX society.
