Hitachi started with personal computers in Japan in 1978 with a system called the Basic Master, based on the Motorola 6800, followed in 1980 by the Hitachi MB-6809 (aka Peach) based on the Motorola 6809. In 1983 Hitachi came out with MSX computers and peripherals, but while they had MSX products in the market, they also introduced in 1984 the Hitachi MB-S1 series, based on newer Motorola 68000 processors.
