I too have been looking for one of these. There is a detailed article
about the 9000's in the special issue of Byte, BYTE Guide to the IBM PC,
fall 1984. Page 219 there is an article titled "Number Crunching on IBM's
New S9000. "IBM joins with MIT's National Magnet Lab to develop
spectrometers for imaging systems" by David J States.
I have this as one of my "10 Most Collectible Micro Sleepers" ...
...which was my response to PC World's article titled "The Most
Collectible PCs of All Time"
If you find two, let me know!
