    Just won an MSX2 based Philips 8250.

    It's in pretty good nick apperently, but only one drive (which apperently works perfect (yeah, heard that before when I bought my C128D))

    It's got a few upgrades, but which exactly I couldent put my finger on as the guy is from Spain, and aside from ordering a few beers in Spanish, it ain't that good.

    So Dos Servesa's aside, looking forwards to when this puppy comes in. Hopefully it IS in good nick.

    Nice.
    Also it should have 2 cartridge slots on the side of the unit.

    Here is a bit of read up on it https://www.msx.org/wiki/Philips_NMS_8250 and I would recommend that site for alot of MSX reading.

    There is also 2 flashcarts available at the moment for it

    Ask him to ship DHL. I have never had any problems for shipping with them. Bit more pricey but worth it.

    Venezuela to Australia in about 3 weeks and thats going through some dodgy countries lol
