Hit-Bit F500

Another member of the MSX 2 family. This computer was intended to be a "semi-professional computer", with its built-in floppy disk unit, its separate keyboard and its mouse.

It used a graphical interface on top of the MSX-DOS with windows and icons (and bears a striking resemblance to the first version of GEM).

A nice computer, now if it wasn’t as expensive!

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).


I was using some msx computers long ago, mainly for games.
I had a Sony Hit Bit 700 that i sold to buy a pc but was missing it so much that i bought a used Sony Hit Bit F500 F (for France I guess). I still have it and its working fine for now. It is booting on Msx Basic, but I have no manual left (if u know of some pdf file ...). I have some game cartridges too.

I really don't know as I have never used one of them, I've been reading about this computer and could be a GEM version (but, I'm not sure).
