If it's been sitting that long (mid 90's?? since this was manufactered)
what are the chances...
Says works perfectly, but if never used I assume he has not turned it on?
Tapes indicate V3r1 OS but no tapes for compilers and other products.
And what would you do with it?

If you want an old machine at home, at least get a 170 or 270 - they can be just as cheap. You will have licensing issues (if you care).

I personally like this AS-400 Aqua Scooter

Subject: 9404 on eBay

I saw this 9404 on eBay. Seller says "never been used" then "works perfectly".

Is there ANY value to this thing?

Details on the configuration are sketchy, at best.

Wouldn't there be quite a few issues attempting to use this?
