Mac SE computers (was Re: AppleTalk)

I have a mac plus in my collection that has something called a Hyperdrive installed in it. It's a controller card and MFM hard drive that fits behind the crt and everything actually just fits. Mine amazingly still works. Unless it was a special configuration, there was no such thing as a dual floppy SE with a hard drive.

upper frame, to the side of the CRT. Someone probably kludged one into a SE
case, not wanting to forego the all important second FD. I remember
launching MacPaint on my Fatmac and having to swap out system disks ten or
twelve times before I could doodle. Thank god for that external 400k drive,
who would need more space?
