    I am interested in buying either of these computers...
    Anyone have any good links or places to buy?
    Anything I should know?
    Which one is more user friendly?


    Thanks

    X68k is much more user-friendly and comfortable to use, although X1 is naturally fairly simple if you know your ways with (Hu-)BASIC. The question is rather what you want to do with it... X68k has some great games and is very powerful graphics-wise, X1 is of course an entirely different generation and really damn retro from today's perspective.

    As for sources, Yahoo Japan. I don't think there's any other source that deserves the name.

    Thanks! I really just want to play games and mess around a bit. I think I'll focus on an X68k.
