Description

Computer

The Toshiba HX-20E is the adaptation for Spain of the HX-20 - see HX-20 series for the technical details. Although the keyboard is international (no ñ key, just accent key), the manuals are in Spanish (only) and all info about these machines point to Spain, so it seems to have been sold only there.

The Japanese Word Processor has been replaced by an English Word Processor, the PSG sound is mono instead of stereo, the additional MSX-BASIC commands for the printer and RS-232C have been removed, there's no possibility to add an internal RS-232C interface.

Note: The computer cardboard box seems to be a generic HX-20 "universal" one, so it might depict some other different models of the complex HX-2X ecosystem. One side of the box shows the Toshiba HX-20 computer and the other side shows the pic of a Toshiba HX-22.

Firmware

A integrated firmware menu is launched when you start the computer, but you can skip it if you press ESC key while booting. This firmware includes the additional BASIC commands for Memory Disk. The RS-232C upgrade option can't be used on the HX-20E computer.
