        The Indus GT was one nice drive and they made it for other
machines than just the Atari line. It was interesting to sit there
and listen to it while watching the track readout change. I've never
torn one apart to check but I'm told that they used a Z80 in the
drive to control everything which would be interesting since that'd
make the chip in the drive as powerful as the main CPU of the machine
it was attached to.
