As I am getting older, I'm getting more nostalgic Smile

I was very young when my dad bought an MSX-2. Unfortunately he got rid of it in since then, but I would love to know what brand and model it was. I'll tell you what I recall and hopefully one of you can help me.

I wondered on internet for hours and the closest I could find to my memory of it is a CPC-300 (https://www.msx.org/wiki/Daewoo_CPC-300) in black, but I'm not quite convinced that is the one.

It was black. It had a number block on the right. It had 2 expansion slots on the top-right. I don't think it had arrow keys below the number block, but I think it was in-between, not sure though. I live in western-europe btw, so that might limit it as well.

I do recall the MSX had a build in menu with a simple text editor and a couple more options, which you could select before it booted into MSX.

I known it's not much, but maybe it rings a bell for someone.

Or a Sony HB-F5, perhaps? The F5 was released in Japan only - Europe got the F9 instead, which was grey.

I think I'm pretty sure it had two cartridge slots, so the Sony is pretty close I think. Though I do think it was black.
Thanks guys, hope to ever run into one.

Probably Sony HB-F9P - https://www.msx.org/wiki/Sony_HB-F9P - as it has a dutch rom, no floppy, 2 slots.
