Ah... the poor, unloved Model II. What a machine.

I may be about to acquire one of these beasts (appropriate term) and I would like to ask what are my options for mass storage. I assume HDD cards and drives are like hen's teeth, so would like to ask if there is any modern mass storage available? Something like the Cheapo HDD that is cost effective and quick. Maybe it can be altered?

Many years ago I bought one with a 10meg HDD and after my experience with the Model 4 I'd like to run CP/M on a M2 with mass storage.

Cheers

Thanks pski I should have searched... That looks interesting indeed... and I have posted a message to express some interest.

It's worth remembering that we can plug 5.25 / 3.5 drives into it as well (I am making an assumption here, but it does have an external floppy expansion interface and it must be Shugart), so we are not limited solely to 8" disks - although I do think they are rather quaint... :)
