Is the slot layout of this model already confirmed and are the ROMs dumped?

The advertise in MSX Magazine says there is only one drive so de second was sold apart.

PS: There is written "Original price" in the description table. That does not mean much. At the time, the prices quoted by the manufacturers were recommended prices at launch. We sometimes found more expensive prices, or the same among manufacturers but they were often cheaper at large resellers. The prices fell even more over time. So "Launch price" (or more precisely "Manufacturer's launch price") is more appropriate.

In addition "Model number" or "Model" is also more appropriate than "Type".

@gdx: I've changed the templates, it is now "Model" and "Launching price" instead of "Type" and "Original price".

All three roms are now dumped, and can be found from:
https://github.com/popolonx/MSX_STUFF/tree/main/CANON_V30F
also VRAM expansion board kicad files are there, but it is "proto" for this proto....I have ordered non-golded pcbs.

By the way, in these rom ics, there are hand written texts straight to the chip surface. In disk rom there is text "V2.0" and in sub rom, text "MSX 2". In main rom there is no visible text.

Only the proto has the slot for this VRAM expansion, is not.
