Most PS/2 machines have it. Only the absolute latest ones, like the 85
and 95 don't. It was even included in some post-PS/2 machines. I think
it only disappeared completely when IBM stopped using BIOS that were
written specifically for each machine and moved to something "standardized".
They don't have the cassette port, though, of course.
