Hi all,
Can someone tell me the width of a typical MSX2 in the NMS 8250/55/80 series?

I'm thinking of trying to buy one of these, but I'm not sure it will fit the cabinet I'd like it to fit in :-)

It has cartridge slots on the side of the machine so you need to allow for the height of the cartridges as well.

Ik soe krek efkes foar dy sjen... Rats, English please...
In stead of finding myself something to measure the thing with - and having to search the darn thing Wink - I found some info on page 2 of MCM 12...
But keep in mind what stimpy says...

Groetnis...

Meits,
Dankewol! Dat hast moai fûn.

So, it turns out the width is 38 cm and I need it to fit in 39 cm.
Close call... no: perfect fit :-)

St1mpy,
Thanks for pointing out the cartridge slots position!
I hadn't considered that indeed.
It should not be a problem though, since the computer is confined between two "pillars", so there is room for cartridges locally.

So now let's find a decent priced machine!
Any other things worth mentioning that I shouldn't overlook in buying one?

That sounds like a very decent price.
And somehow I get the impression that we might not live all that far apart either, so that could be very convenient as well!

I sent you an email.
