   Other than the obvious difference in floppy size and location, the EX was
strictly an XT-class machine that required the 5-1/4" boot disk to boot, as it
didn't have the DOS-in-ROM of the HX. Also I could be wrong, but I don't
believe it had any type of internal EEPROM setup like the HX and AT-class and
above machines. Otherwise, the cases appear to be based on the same one, with
just the modifications for the floppy relocation.
