For the 22th edition of MSXdev, hardware seller sdsnatcher73 donates a Panasonic FS-A1 MSX2 computer.
The ever-growing MSXdev22 Winners Loot-box just got stuffed a little more with a Panasonic FS-A1 MSX2. Donated by hardware seller sdsnatcher73. This mighty fine and sweet looking modified machine is fully functional and for any winner of the dev show to take home.
As the MSX system is a general computer manufactured by many different brands of hardware companies, the variety is plenty. Panasonic is one of the manufacturers that made some brilliant, good looking MSX machines. The Panasonic FS-A1 MSX2 is no exception as it’s colorful, compact and a pleasure to look at it. This particular item has been modified by the removal of the built-in Deskpac firmware and a cartridge slot cover that has been replaced with a 3D printed replica.
This Japanese Panasonic MSX2 machine from 1986 is equipped with 64KRAM and 128KVRAM. Originally, the Panasonic FS-A1 was available in black and in red. This one is the black edition, with shiny orange keyboard buttons. For a full oversight of its specs, visit the MRC Wiki about this machine.
