This machine was aimed at the Japanese market and available in a mix of white, gray and black with some red accents.

For the photography fans, this machine is recommended to be used with an innovative digital Interface Unit DMB between the computer and the Canon T90 Single-lens reflex (SLR) camera. DMB-90 means Data Memory Back 90.
