Since we were founded in the 1980's, we pre-date the AS/400. We know the IBM S/34, S/36, S/38.

We were a Beta testing site for IBM for the AS/400 436 Advanced S/36.

The 436 ceased to be sold by IBM on June 30, 1998. Occasionally we do have used equipment and welcome your inquiry.

Some models of the Risc AS/400 can run as a S/36. Many S/36 sites can use a current model iSeries. Please contact us that we may properly configure a machine for your needs.

We can help you recover from a disk crash on both 236 and 436. Let us help you reload your system.

We have nicely configured 436 SSP boxes available starting at $495

We do offer upgrades to the 436, such as

Add a 4GB hard drive to your Model 436 for only $75!

Add 32MB Memory for $75!

Add OS/400 and use the S/36 Environment
