Mitsubishi MSX ML-F80

I recently aquired an 1983 MSX manufactured by Mitsubishi;

It’s an MSX 1 with 64kb RAM I found some extra information here http://www.old-computers.com/museum/computer.asp?st=1&c=431

Msx basic isn’t the same as the C64 basic, I had to to some research to write  a small basic script with my 7 year old son, but we succeeded 🙂

Next find some cartridges to test the cartridge port, I never had an MSX when I was a child but a went to a local electorshop to try out their Sony hitbit which was on display. Remember playing some sort of ‘pitfall’ game on it. I have a hitbit in my collection but it isn’t in working condition.

Any Belgian retro-collectors out there who can lend me a cart ? They’re difficult to track-down on second-hand sites here.

Next time I dig up my Panasonic MSX together with  the Sony hitbit to complete the picture…
