The Wang laptop (transportable) was a huge black machine that connected
several peripherals via it's 50 pin Centronics interface connector terminated
at the end of the chain. I have never seen a 3 1/2" floppy for it so I am not
surprised that it had only a 720 available. I don't think they made a 1.44. I
had a MO drive for them once and I know there was a CD also. You could chain
more than one hard drive too. Wang had pretty good firmware, so I am not too
surprised that they are plug and play. I have no idea how well Wang complied
with the SCSI standards.
