1983.

This was one of Japan's first exports of MSX computers. MSX was one of the first standards within operating systems in the computer world. It made it possible to use the same program - and, perhaps above all - games, in various computers from different manufacturer. It was no need to develop new programs all the time but they could focus on the hardware.

Many of these computers has found its way to Europe and perhaps above all to UK. Toshiba had in Japan a group of computers - or as they called it, a "family" of computers - known as Pasopia. Toshiba HX-10 was a part of the Pasopia family under the name Pasopia IQ.
