The Toshiba HX-10P, more commonly known simply as the HX-10 as indicated on the machine and on the box, is one of the adaptations of the Japanese Toshiba HX-10DP for the British market - see HX-10 series for the technical details

While it was clearly meant for the British market, as it has a 240V power supply, it was also offered in other markets in mainland Europe such as Germany and Italy. These were likely grey imports, as Toshiba had overestimated the amount of systems they could sell in Britain. As an effect the prices of the HX-10 in Britain quickly dropped, and Toshiba also tried offering a starter kit (see HX-10 Kit below) in Britain to shift inventory.

A demo tape was included (but not provided with the HX-10 Kit detailed below). The demo is completely written in MSX-BASIC and contains 5 programs: Sample - Demo - MSX Graphics - Keyboard Trainer - Junior Maths.

For other European versions, see HX-10AA, HX-10E, HX-10F, HX-10I and HX-10SF.

Official launch price for Great-Britain in late 1984: £279. However prices quickly dropped, and a year later the system sold for under £70.

In Great-Britain, in October of 1985, Toshiba introduced a complete kit as a starter pack for £139.99, which included the following:

Prices however continued to drop, and in February of 1986 it sold for under £100.
