        In the early 90's, after the Zenith govenment contracts for
supplying the Z-248's and such had run out, Unisys supplied the DoD
with 386SX-16 machines in various configuration under the Desktop III
contract. One interesting aspect of these machines was that they
came standard with SCSI interfaces and hard disks. Now most of the
systems, at least for the Navy, are supplied by Dell and will likely
continue to be for the forseeable future.

        The post office in Greenbelt, MD has IBM terminals and they
are fairly new.
