the tape is an option but has a factory style faceplate, made for certain
models of the PS/2 line - and therefore more expensive then as well. The part
that normally gets yanked on surplus 90's is the 2 cards with clip that form
the 2 RAM banks. as well as the SCSI drive.

What's the tpe number on the right lower fornt of the unit? It will be
something like 8590-xxx or 9590-xxx and the xxx part denotes the processor and
other standard options from the factory. If yyou need the URL to IBM PS/2
harwardware manaul online (HMM) let me know and I'll post it.I have a couple
here in varying states just in case you're overwhelmed with people wanting
