This post notes:

"AFAIK the only difference between the FX-870P and the VX-4 is the color scheme and the built-in
RAM. Surely the educational VX-4 (8K) was cheaper than the commercial FX-870P (32K)."

Okay, so just memory and a different paint job, then.

I pulled a Tandy 8 KB RAM module out of a PC-6 with a wonky ribbon cable and put it in the VX-4, and now I've got about 11.5 KB for program storage. That should be enough to tinker with, though I wouldn't say no to a good deal on a 32 KB module. Wink
