I don't think this has been posted here yet, so here goes. For those that were fans of the old MSX computers, this promises to be something that will help recreate that old MSX magic.
I've subscribed to the mailinglist. Probably will be getting this device as I am a fan of the msx-2 computer systems. A great Dutch initiative!

I agree. I really look forward to this and hope it is popular enough to keep the development going. I was a big MSX proponent years ago and did quite a bit of programming for it. I may just have to dust off my MSX-Basic neurons and give it a go again.
It looks like there is a delay for US and European audiences...
In Japan, D4 Enterprise has just started taking orders on the first batch of 5,000 One Chip MSX computers.
As you may have noticed, Bazix has not started taking orders yet. It has turned out that a few parts on the One Chip MSX board are not compliant with European production directives, which means that the One Chip MSX cannot be distributed to Europe or the USA in its current form. However, together with D4 Enterprise and the manufacturer of the One Chip MSX, we are currently investigating the possibility of producing a separate batch of One Chip MSX computers that should comply with these production directives. We expect to be able to reveal more information on this in the near future.
We understand you would like to get your hands on a One Chip MSX as soon as possible, and highly appreciate your patience and understanding. Through this newsletter, we will keep informing you on the status of the One Chip MSX production, distribution, pricing and (pre)ordering.
From the www.msx.org Website: It was already rumoured in the comments sections of the MRC, but now announced officially on D4E's One Chip MSX website: due to requests from the MSX community, the One Chip MSX's default configuration has been given a memory boost. Originally the OCM was planned to have 256kB internal memory, now it has been confirmed it will ship with 1MB.
