Hi,
I'm wondering if FMV-DESKPOWER PCs are compatible with all software for old FM-TOWNS, I'm thinking to get one of these in order to play some games (I heard they have some kind of emulator) since all my FM-TOWNS have fault built-in CD-ROM.I spotted some models on YJA like this:

The cost of these computers in the auction will be very high.
