The Toshiba HX-20I is the adaptation for continental Europe of the HX-20, it was sold in Italy and Spain - see HX-20 series for the technical details

The PSG sound is mono instead of stereo.

An RS-232C interface as like that of the HX-20 can probably be added if you replace the IC3 ROM by the one from the HX-22CH, HX-22GB or HX-22I in the same way as for the HX-20E.

Note: The computer cardboard box is a generic HX-20 "universal" one. One side of the box shows the Toshiba HX-20 computer and the other side shows the pic of a Toshiba HX-22.


A menu proposing the firmware is launched when you start the computer, but you can skip it if you press ESC key while booting.

This firmware includes the additional BASIC instructions for Memory Disk.

Compared to the HX-20:

  • the RS-232C features have been removed
  • the extra MSX-BASIC instructions for the printer are not implemented
  • the Japanese Word Processor has been replaced by an English Word Processor
