Description

The Talent DPC-200 is the adaptation for Argentina, Chile and Uruguay of the Daewoo CPC-200, an evolution of the Daewoo DPC-200. Contrary to other localisations, this machine was manufactured in Argentina by the Telemática company.

There are 2 versions of this machine:

  • the first version has an 'International' QWERTY keyboard and is produced under Daewoo licence
  • the second version has the same standard Spanish QWERTY keyboard as the MSX2 TPC-310 and is produced without any reference to the Daewoo licence, because Telemática had acquired the licences directly from Microsoft.

This second version was also sold in a Special Kit including a data tape recorder, 2 joysticks and a selection of games.

A numeric keypad TNX-410 can be added and was sold separately.
