The SE had a lot of firsts for a compact Mac - two drive bays (dual floppy
or one floppy and one hard drive), standard SIMM module memory expansion,
internal expansion slot (video, ethernet, accelerators, etc.), and ADB
instead of serial keyboard and mouse.  A later 'SuperDrive' edition of the
SE supported high density 1.4MB floppy disks.
