I believe the "x100" reference in this context is to the Power Macintosh
models 6100, 7100 and 8100, which were the first models of PowerPC-based
Macintoshes (based on the PowerPC 601 chip), with NuBus instead of PCI.
The MESH is a SCSI bus controller chip found in the Power Macintoshes,
precise manufacturer and part number of which escapes me.
