• Subject: Any risk in Cisc

Firstly apologies for any puns!

We have a model 9406-300 about 5 years old in our Rio
office. It is still doing it's job and has not run out
of capacity and nor is it likely to. We have business
plans to replace this by merging it with our US office
in the last quarter of the year. We have IBM
maintenance and we just suffered a disc crash which
was repaired.

Do we face any risks like spare part shortages by
staying on this model until it is replaced or should
we spend a relatively large amount for a short time
and go to RISC (170 or similar)?

The current machine has 32mb memory, 4x 6606 2gb
drives and a 2gb streamer tape.

I would very much appreciate the list's comments.
