Floppy and Hard Drive Specs

From William R. Walsh:
   A Model 30 (no 286) is a machine equipped with an 8086 CPU and low density 3.5 inch floppy drive(s). It may have a hard disk, usually 20 MB. Some high density floppy drives are supported by this computer, though IBM never officially built them this way.

   A Model 30 (with the 286) is a 286 with 1 1.44 MB floppy drive (I've never seen on without a hard disk. They may have been offered that way. Dunno.) The hard disk may be 20, 30 or 45 MB in capacity.
