I remember the announcement. I think it was when I was doing a vacation
job with IBM in 1987 [*]. I've still got some of the marketing leaflets
- "Welcome to the new computer room" with a picture of a 9370 in an
office. The implication was that the 9370 machines were more like minis
than mainframes, and didn't need a dedicated computer room.
But IBM probably expected your office to be air conditioned...
[*] It could have been 1986. But more likely we didn't get them until a
year after the US.
