They're drives. I have a 9121 (that collects dust very well) that's a
dual 3.5" floppy with a GPIB/HPIB interface. Don't get too excited, the
3.5" drives only do about 180K or something like that. Nowhere's near
the 1.44M in the PC's. I think the 9122 has either one or no floppies
and a hard disk and the 9123 maybe both. We have either the 22 or 23
at work. In any event for $2.50 they're be great if you have a boat.
