The Sakhr AX-170 is based on the z80 chip, and the Arabic legends are telling: it was a popular model in the Arab world and was made in Kuwait.

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 – msx.org.

Manufactured from 1986.
