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

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.
