The Sharp MZ-80A was the "enhanced" version of the Sharp MZ-80K. It had about the same technical features but offered a typewriter keyboard, better display, enhanced text mode and a Parallel printer port.
Like the MZ-80K and the MZ-80B, it had no language in ROM. The disadvantage was that user had to load a language from tape each time he switched the machine on, on the other hand, any language or machine code program could be loaded instead of the standard BASIC.
The MZ-80A was the last evolution of the all-in-one MZ-80 series and the predecessor of the MZ-700 series. It was sold in Japan under the name SHARP MZ-1200.
