Business purposes?  No WAY!  The G-15 was obsolete within a 
year after it was introduced, but it was cheap, and for a 
few years core memory was still very expensive.  The 
performance was laughable by 1965 for sure.  They've had it 
for 25+ years?  How about FIFTY?

As for that rack on the right, it may be that they replaced 
the rather crude power supplies inside the
CPU with external regulated supplies.
