The company's drive case label says 600 although I've seen
similar units that claim 640. One 5 1/4 cart was included.

The Quadra 950 must be the largest box Apple ever made, so
I don't think that was portable. :-) It hadn't occurred to
me that the power would be coming in - that's an interesting
possibility. What does a conventional power supply do when
it is off and power comes in the wrong way?
