Specifications

This computer is a MSX1 without MSX-Engine. The CPU is a Z80A from Goldstar (GSS Z8400A PS).

All features are common to the standard, apart from one: it has a hole at the right of the cartridge slot to store a lightpen when the pen is not in use. A lightpen was planned in option with its dedicated cartridge, but was never released.
