I have a Model 600, which is slow as molasses in January but it's got all the programming tools legally licensed :D

I got mine for $400. Best thing is to get everything with the system, at least then you can transfer the licenses hopefully.

Thay also make a stylish addition to any living room :D

http://www.netshare400.com/EndOfService.html is a link at a time
sharing site that I have used from time. John Ross is turning it off
in July but lists some options on that page. Some seem to offer free
accounts. I've not actually followed them, so it'd be interesting to
hear what you find out.

Lukas makes a valid point about administering a system, but you are
able to do development all you want on most of these, within some
limits - probably can't do development that would change the
configuration, but that's reasonable. If you need more than that,
might be worth picking up a cheap used item, as he suggests. I've
even been offered a chance at an older machine by a former employer,
it has no residual value for them anymore.

!!! Midrange Fanatics !!!

I used to work for a great company which happened to use the i5, AS/400,
System i for a banking application and I have to admit I just fell in love.
Now that I do not work for a large company I have a problem where can I
continue to tune my i5 skills ?

If I want to learn Linux I download it...
If I want to learn ruby on rails I just jump onto a web site look up a few
commands, download the software and off I go...
Heck if I want to learn COS i buy an old router on ebay and there I go...

Where can we go to get access to the awesome platform ?
