The 715/(64/80/100) use standard PS/2 keyboards and mice. But there
wasn't enough room on the back of the machine for all the connectors. So
these machines come with a small box that has a HP-HIL, a PS/2 keyboard
and a PS/2 mouse connector on one side and is connected with a 10 pin
cable to the machine. There is no electronic in the box, it is just a
small break out box.

The older 715/(33/50/75) are HIL only. They may look similar, but they
are quite different to the later 715/(64/80/100). (Different CPU and
chipset, IO bus, firmware...)
