    Same reason people spend a fortune on a Tennis Racket or a set of Golf Clubs. They believe that are the best for gaming...

    did anyone here win the eBay auction for this system?
    I'm really hoping someone can image the software disks that were found

    I was extremely tempted as I could have got it for under $600USD... but the shipping/freight costs to my home here in BC, Canada would have cost much more than the unit itself and would have probably been at least $1500 alone...I'm not one to shy away from spending a good amount of money for a system like this. I'd happily spend $1k+ for a complete system locally.

    Speaking of software for IBM midrange I happened to see these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/114155261257. Maybe these S/34 diagnostics disks are common as dirt?

    I asked the seller if I could make copies of the floppies and the buyer said no.
    Apparently they are in Iowa and are going to drive out to pick it up.
