Inspired by this page, lets find out since we all started MSXing.... sub-question: what was your first MSX computer?

I started in 1986, and my first MSX computer was a Philips NMS-8245. I was 6 years old at the time ^_^.

I started in 1989, as a four-years-old brat, on my dad's NMS8245.

My MSX-Activities started when I was 11 in 1985, when my steph-father bought a Toshiba HX-10 Smile So that's 21 years ago.
Man, it feels like ages!!! (Which it is!)

I was about 9 when my dad bought a Philips VG 8020, with a data recorder, 2 joysticks and one game. I remember he bought MCM 14 (I hope I'm correct here) soon after that, and he tried typing in the Jake in the Caves program, which took weeks because he didn't use the checking program at first! (That was a key learning point!)

Somewhere around 1985/1986, Philips VG8020. I got my first MSX2 (a Philips NMS8255) in 1998, after a visit to the Almelo'97 fair.

Hmmm, hard to remember, but I'll try
It was just when MSX came to Brazil. About 1986 or 87. My first (and only) MSX was a black Hotbit 1.2, with a DDX 5 1/4 drive. I had this puter for some 2 years, and traded it for an IC test board for the Apple II.

After all these years, I bought a MSX in 2002 or 2003, and everything happened again Smile Now I have money to have a 2.0+ and megaram. In my childhood these were just dreams Wink
