  As I recall, the 1.44M SuperDrive came out after the SE and the II were
introduced, but before they were discontinued.  Later models of those two
machines had 1.44M drives standard, and the earlier models with 800k
drives could be upgraded by swapping the old floppy controller chip and
drive for newer ones.  Pluses weren't upgradeable (as usual).  A guy I
know has a Mac II with two floppies - one 800k and one 1.44M. 

  To make things even more complicated, Applied Engineering makes a 1.44M
floppy drive that hangs off the SCSI chain.
