 achei algumas infos sobre ele no Google tem fotos tambem.

Sakhr Computers was a Kuwaiti company (Al Alamiah co.) that was selling MSX computers imported from Japan in all of the Arab world. These MSX were localized by Al Alamiah and rebranded for the Arabic market.

The Sakhr AX-230 is like the Sanyo MPC-2 localised for Arabic countries but the PCB and components are not the same. A RGB output has been added but a cartridge slot has been removed. This model is available in blue (B), gray (GL) or red (R).

After booting without pressing the CTRL key, the computer will be in Arabic mode. In this mode:

  • the combination of the GRAPH key with an alphabetic key will display an MSX-BASIC instruction on the screen
  • the extra STAR key can be used in a similar way to the GRAPH key
  • some combinations can produce accented characters in stead of MSX-BASIC instructions

Esse charset específico deve dar merda em alguns jogos brasileiros. Mas ao mesmo tempo deve ser no mínimo interessante de se ver um jogo feito pra esse MSX em específico, todo em árabe.
