1984.

GoldStar is a MSX computer from Korea. MSX was one of the very first cross-border standards for computers and made them compatible with each other. This machine was relatively ordinary for its time with sound and 16 colours and the ability to connect a printer, monitor or TV screen, disk drive, tape recorder, lighting-pen, joystick and cartridge. About the only thing that is characteristic of this computer is a hole in the top right corner near the cartridge jack, where you can store the lighting-pen when not in use.
