I am somewhat surprised to learn that any commercially available general
purpose computer had an 8186 CPU. I've only seen it in purpose built
equipment. The last one I saw was in a mobile X-Ray or CT machine in
the late '90s.
I would love some confirmation on the CPU. (I'll look it up in a bit.)
That would mean that IBM PS/2s had every major class of x86 CPU between
the 8086 (or was it 8088, which is still in the 8x86 family) and the
IMHO that's impressive.
