Newer model trainers vs. fixed fork versions

I train on a older Minoura MagTurbo II, the kind where you remove the front rim and attach the fork to the trainer using a QR lever. It has a support under the bottom bracket. What ever happend to these types of trainers? I only ever see the fold-up kind where you leave the front rim on the bike. I can't find any info on the older units anywhere. Anyone remember these kind of trainers? Why aren't they made like this anymore?

Funny you should mention, cause I just got out my Schwinn Speedworks II. Think it's similar to the MagTurbo. Just don't remember it being such a workout years ago. The nice Kansas weather turned snowy & icy again though.
