I spent way too much time on the Amstrad today and was left very
little to review the SONY HiT BiT that I recovered from my recent
adventures. This meant I couldn't spend time cleaning the computer
And whilst they are never dirty, the camera does pick up every
last little speck of dust. I do apologise. It was either dusty
SONY or none as I have a busy few days ahead of me.
So here we have the second of this particular model and third
overall for the HiT BiT family of machines. As ever with the MSX
it basically ' did what it said on the tin '. Japanese kit has a way
of working but being ever so slightly dull. Looks nice though.

It's that key that says ' Clean Me'
Turns to my trusty Konami cartridge

Like I said all working
Meant to include this with the Mitsubishi
