tfh: I hope you do understand that March 2005 means Nov 2005 at the earliest Tongue Well, at least if Mr. Murphy has his way (and he usually does). I kind of doubt MSXA/ASCII would be making the type of case you describe, but I'm sure they put some kind of nice box around it.

I still really feel we should like make a challenge out of it; send the results to the MSXA. The worst that could happen is they take a look at it and go 'nah!'. On the other hand, if you're lucky they might even use your design as a base for the new one-chip MSX! Well, that is ofcourse assuming they don't already have the designs drawn up and a mold in the making...

I think they make a blue/white/pink Fisher-Price case to appeal to young toddles.. Smile

I know what it costs to make something like that. You need to sell a considerable quantity to make it cost effective to earn your money back, or even make some profit in the end. This is also the reason why they used an existing system to make that MSX-PC thingie last year.
bullshit!
They did not MAKE a MSX-PC thingy, they just stuck a MSXPLAYer logo on it. It was a gimmick, why haven't you understood that yet??

What do you think you're talking about anyway, this is not some garage operation...

maybe even some form of ISA/PCI like expansion slots
WTF?!

@Guyver: I know the MSXPC was a gimmick, nothing more, nothing less. I just wanted to say that if it was very cheap to make your own casing for such a thing, they might have did that, but those costs couldn't have been justified.
As for garage-operation? Why do you need to react in such a childish manner again? http://www.pa-dm.com is partitally my company. Before the management buy-out, We (and I) used to work HP, Dell, Siemens, Gateway, etc... You can hardly call that a garage operation.
I know.. You software has sold to the millions, and that's a lot more impressive.. d'uh!
C'mon.. I am only trying to give some etxra information here and to be quite honest: I think this whole OneChipMSX1 thing is quite nice and I would love to see it go further then this. It's the coolest MSX development in years!
Please... please stop putting me (and others) down everytime you have the chance, please.. will you?

I am not talking about technically the same bus, as this is not feasible. But how about some kind of slot-expander that will allign nicely with the PCI slots on the backside of a normal (ATX?)-chassis, which can be used for future MSX Expansions? Maybe even some sort of "upgraded" cartridgeslots can be used which offer some more possibilites.
Remember that by using the programmable features of the OneChipMSX1, you can surpass some of the current MSX capabilities and add your own...

I don't think the new msx needs an internal floppy drive perse, so I think it could (and should? Wink ) be kept really small.
While it could look cool, I don't think the casing needs to be very advanced.
anyway, I'd love to have a new small MSX as opposed to the really not small (but comfortable) 8250 I have now. Not that I'd get rid of that one, though Wink

Hmmm... After re-reading Guyver's message, I noticed I probably mis-understood his remark about the "garage-operation", unfortunatelly, I cannot edit my message above anymore, so Smile
If I indeed read it the wrong way: Guyver, my appologies!

To keep it really small, you could consider using an internal 2.5" HDD (laptop size) and if you want to use other devices, they will just have to be connected through USB (or any other way).
