Have you tried posting in the Trading and collecting forum? Something like "Wanted: MSX2, preferably near <insert your city here>". This way you might be able to go pick the computer up by car or even public transportation and save yourself the postage. If you are living in the Netherlands you might also want to try posting in the Dutch forum.

Manuel, I've already seen postage of €34 and €45 on eBay, so I suppose that explains it. This may prevent me from buying an MSX2 from Bas.

Kanima, I don't see any point posting in the Trading and collecting forum. As I said elsewhere, I live in or near London. MSX2 computers were never sold here, so I doubt there would be any available for sale here. I think that everyone in the Dutch forum also follows this forum. I suppose I could try both those suggestions, though. Perhaps a Dutch or Flemish MSX2 owner who also likes sailing a yacht over to somewhere like Southend on Sea, Chelmsford, Dover, or Folkstone could bring the MSX2 computer over on a certain date and I could give them the cash.

No mention of you living in London in this thread, and I don't read nor remember all posts. Since you mentioned markplaats.nl and ebay.nl I assumed you lived in the Netherlands. Anyway, if you'd configured your country in your profile people would be able to see you're from the UK.

I'll have to go and edit my profile. I mentioned www.maarktplaats.nl and www.ebay.nl because I'd already found out I could buy MSX2 computers from there. Unfortunately, www.maarktplaats.nl seems to have closed down now.

I've just added a comment that I'm looking for an NMS8250 or similar MSX2 computer on the topic http://www.msx.org/nl/forum/multilingual-forums/discussies-h...

You probably mean: http://www.marktplaats.nl/

I doubt an MSX2 weighs more than 20kg, so you probably pay 25 or 34 euros, depending whether it goes over 10kg.

Thanks for the spelling correction! www.marktplaats.nl is still there. I learnt Dutch from courses such as Linguaphone, as well as radio and TV.

I've decided I definitely prefer the style of the Philips NMS8250 and models with higher numbers, such as 8255, because they look more professional, like a piece of video equipment, with a seperate keyboard. Can someone weigh their NMS8250 system for me (main unit and keyboard without anything else) and tell me the exact weight? Packaging will add a little bit of weight. Unfortunately, kitchen scales probably aren't accurate enough.

Now I think it's time to write a good email to Bas!

I wonder how difficult it would be to patch software to work directly with the external 9958 VDP the way it has been done for the V9990 for some games. Even for MSX2 machines it would be useful if you could use the MSX2+ features like horizontal scrolling and bigger color palette

It's not difficult to patch software to work directly with the external v9958 but it takes time.
The best is to keep your MSX1 and buy an MSX2+ or an MSX2 upgraded.
