Certain miodel PS/2's use SCSI as do other IBM compats such as Compaqs and Dells
and others besides Apple/mac. The problem with apple/Mac drives is that the are
still very much in use and generally the owners want too much because they are
Apple branded/certifed. Also check eBay as there are cheap small capacity SCSI
drives on there every day. I got a box of 5 80mb IBM SCSI drives for $5 plus ship
one day last year.

You have a URL or email address for the Commie serial to SCSI guy? i'm going to put
my 128D back in service and it might be a neat for a fall project.
