I'm looking for info on the most inexpensive used RS/6000 model one can
purchase these days, which still is supported under the most recent
versions of AIX. I don't need anything but for it to be a box which
supports a serial console and SCSI disks (hopefully IBM's hardware isn't
too picky about drive makes/models -- I'm not very experienced with the
IBM hardware yet).
Speed is not an issue. It can be slow as molasses in January on the
northermost boundary of the Yukon. You're talking to guy who runs
MicroVAX II's at home for self-amu*t. It just has to be cheap, like a
few hundred dollars cheap, like defintely less than $800US cheap... but
cheaper than that is better.
Followups can be posted here if you don't think it's waste of bandwidth,
or feel free to e-mail me. Feedback from used equipment vendors is
welcome, but it's probably only appropriate for you to send me information
-brian. (On an unrelated note, anyone know where I can get an IBM RT PC?)
