Hi all,

I got hold of a photo from the Philips VG-8240, thanks to Philip Weiss!

It seems it's basically a 8230 with superimpose. But I think it's very weird that it doesn't have the "MSX2" logo! It just says MSX!
It may very well be one of the very first MSX2 prototypes anyway.

Here's the picture:

I also scanned this picture of it once, in which the superimpose was probably used to display video content from CD-ROM on it (a bit like the laserdisk player setups from Pioneer and Sony):

The case is not like the 35 becourse no cooling strips at the top.
And i think its a msx 1 look at the rom size
