Philips NMS 8220

The Philips NMS 8220 is an MSX2 computer released by the Dutch company Philips. The abbreviation NMS stands for New Media Systems. This machine is often used in combination with a data recorder, such as the Philips NMS-1515 Data Recorder.

Its design is very similar to the MSX1 VG-8020, but it's an MSX2 with 64kB RAM (not 192kB as indicated on the machine and the box by adding the VRAM). That similarity probably explains why some people think it was also sold under the name VG-8220, though there is no proof of that.
