OK Yea they were odd inside we have tower here.. think it is a 70
and a 17" or 19 inch MONSTER ibm monitor ( alas B/W).
Years and Years ago someone dumped a bunch at a thrift shop.. lots of
neat here I wish I had kept more of them... I kept the tower and let
the desk tops go you see seldom any of these around here. We also
kept a LAPTOP IBM with dual floppies and a odd plasma screen all in one IBM
and we have an IBM that is like the Compaq Portable and of course a
first PC ( where do I get Charlie Chapman look-a-like to have next to

No they weren't SCSI. Those were only through either a
"spock" or "tribble" MCA card. Those were the code names.
I have *no* idea what the "real" IBM designation was. ;-)
The desktop PS/2 machines (50, 50Z, 70, etc) were all
designed with robotic assembly in mind (that's why there
are no screws or cables in those machines). To accomplish
that the HDD was a non-standard connector.
