That's a good deal, but the Yamaha is probably the only MSX computer that
was fairly common in the US. At least I remember seeing it in just about
every music shop that also carried the Yamaha DX-7 synth in the mid-80's.
(BTW, I still have my Ensoniq Mirage, the first inexpensive digital synth
from the same period, and still a cool toy.)
