Description

Salora MSX is the common name that we can use for three different prototypes.

The Finnish Salora company was in negotiations with three companies, the Japanese Toshiba and Mitsubishi companies, and probably the Korean Goldstar company. Apparently, the intention was to release a computer with 64kB RAM and a keyboard adapted to the Finnish alphabet:

  • the prototype currently on display in the Salo Electronics museum is a re-branded Toshiba HX-10
  • the prototype shown in the eighties is a re-branded Mitsubishi ML-F80
  • probably the third prototype was based on the Goldstar FC-200

For unknown reasons, this project was dropped. However, Toshiba released later the Toshiba HX-10SF in Finland.
