This computer also called X'PRESS is a MSX1 machine, but is equipped with the MSX2 VDP, what allows to use 80 columns in stead of 40 in text mode. It is also possible to use screen 5 with a program taking in account the limits of the memory.

This machine exists under different versions (English, Swedish, Henrik Gilvad disk rom), it has a tape interface and a 360 Kb diskdrive. It comes with three system disks : one MSX-DOS disk, two CP/M disks with different utilities.

Different hobbyists have converted this pre-MSX2 machine in a real MSX2 machine, with or without clock chip. These improved versions are also available on the Resource page of the blueMSX website.
