With today's Power10 and the capacity of DIMMs and such, they could make
a smaller machine than even that old CISC portable machine. Such a thing
could fit into a Compaq case.

But the question in my mind is: "Why"?

I remember the guy who brought the prototype to the Common Conference in
New Orleans. He handed it to me and told me to fire it up. I recall
that it
had a clear plastic case. 😊

Yes we had one too. Really cool at shows and at demos customers were
shocked that you brought an entire IBM "AS/400".

Hi Patrik,

I have a P01.

It was purchased for taking to trade shows and conferences to

demonstrate our software.

It was excellent for that and ran all the licensed programs so any

development was possible.

It was twinax and from memory would support one string of twinax

devices, we used to have to terminals and a printer at a demo.

(Sometimes left the printer behind, it was heavier than th

Still sits in it's carry case under a desk in the office, albeit it

has not been powered u in many a year and the only twinax terminal

that remains is a bit dodgy.

As Patrik points out his system is the last try at it.

Thank you. But… not exactly the last. Allow me to kindly remind about

the model 150, which is newer and although much bigger than a P03 but

still comparatively small. According to what I've read online, it was

meant as a system for either developers, or a low-end production

machine. The OS not requiring lickeys provenly for at least V4R5

(probably earlier) was allegedly the result of massive outcry from

customers needing a development system while IBM wanted fully charge
fees for the OS in the beginning.

A 150 is obviously not as portable as a P03, though. To my knowledge,

the latter was meant as a demonstration system to convince a possible

customer's management that buying an AS/400 is the best thing since

sliced bread. :-)

:wq! PoC
