all pcjr machines came with 128k and one floppy drive. i have seen "second
story" units that add another floppy drive. it seems to be there used to be an
aftermarket for the jr, but a hot-rodded one still wouldnt be as good as a
standard xt though. a popular modification was to bring the machine up to 640k
by soldering in some dip chips in the 128k add on sidecar thing. i believe IBM
has a file on the www searchfiles page that still tells how to do this.
