To be clear:
The computer does not have a cartridge tape drive. The computer rack has
the CPU and three shoebox drives. I believe each drive is about 330MB.
The tape drive that I would add in the deal is a rackmount HP7980
AUTOLOADER. I think it is so cool to watch these drives load a tape.
Almost magical how the tape winds it's way through the drive.
