The S/32  was the  beginning of the non removable disk era that we know
today  The S/34 added  multi programing  and Work station entry. Both
suffered terablly from  the pains of  multi-diskette  save/ restore.

The Sys/32 blew our doors off because it had a CRT...  6 lines by 40.  A
dream come true, it projected it's image onto the CRT screen in reverse
image and then was mirrored to the operator.  Much safer that way. 
Protected the operator from direct radiation.

The Sys/34 was a whole new world  -  You had full size screens and more
than one person at a time could work on the machine.  People could
actually have a terminal right on their desk, or on the parts counter or
what ever.  And the sleek, compact beauty of a 5251 with its beautiful
green screen was just awesome.
