I was going to do a blog about the differences between the C64 and
the Toshiba MSX, but there just wasn't much difference. If you can
handle the C64 you can pretty much use any BASIC computer of the
day. The processes are generally of a like, with some differences
to accommodate the different hardware.
This computer is a dream to use and for a BASIC machine is the best
there was, for me. It has the most wonderful keyboard and handles
so easily as you glide around the commands. I had never considered
an MSX machine in the day. I do regret not shopping around a bit
more when I bought the Sinclair. Had I found this computer I wouldn't
have blinked an eye in buying the Toshiba. She is dream machine for
