hat's interesting because mine has a 10MB drive buit in. I didn't think
they came without HDs because they needed the terminal software, etc...

I think I've seen the monitors before too. I may have seen the
keyboard once long ago. But I already have an IBM PC which I
use to play around with CP/M-86 so wasn't sure if I wanted to keep
this. Of course the PC is a PC and not an XT. It doesn't have the
hard drive on it so maybe I'll use this one as a CP/M-86 machine
