Sharp MZ-700 Manuals

As time goes on it is becoming harder and harder to locate documentation for retro machines. There are many sites whose aim was to document and preserve this information but many fall by the wayside as people age or move on, which clicking on many old links will show.

In order to ensure the documents I reference for these projects remain available they are placed in the table below. I've also listed a set of current working links which are invaluable references.
