There are definitely oldworld models with IDE. For example, all
PowerBooks have used IDE hard drives since before the transition
to ppc. That means at least the 2400,3400, and early G3 PowerBooks
are all both oldworld and dependent on IDE support for internal
drives. I think there are a few desktop oldworld models with IDE
hard drives as well, but I'd have to search around to figure
out which ones.
