There's a Panasonic FS-A1WX MSX2+ on eBay now (mind you: 64k RAM).

Yeah that FS-A1 is a bit pricey and I was told to avoid it because of the RAM, since it wont be able to do DOS2 etc. very well.

Why is an 8250 not ideal?

If you can connect that 8250 via RGB (you might have to make a suitable cable for its SCART plug), it's probably ideal, as you said you already have a power converter. If you can't you will have to use the composite output (blurry) and need to be able to handle a PAL signal.

Oh yes. The dreaded PAL demon. >_< I always forget about that thing til I buy stuff and it looks like a grateful dead video while its running.

Anyway, shipping one from Netherlands is wayyyyyy too pricey for me. One of these days I will find a suitable MSX, I swear it.

Sure you can't use RGB?
I don't think shipping is that expensive, if you consider that the machine itself might cost you only about 25 euros. You might want to get a 8245, which is a lot lighter.

Yeah I would like to get away from the wedge computers if possible. They're nice and all, but it brings poor memories of C64/Amiga stuff. :-D

It would cost about 110$ to ship the MSX to me, on top of the actual cost of the MSX, so kind of alot.

Too bad these things were never stateside .

Arkhan: according to the site of TNT Post, shipping will cost 54,45 euros (5-10 kg, which should be enough).

There's a US seller on ebay with a Panasonic FS-A1WSX. It's a MSX2+ model with s-video out which perfect for you if don't have a RGB monitor.
