I am considering the acquisition of an old IBM AS/400 midrange computer. The provider has stated the model is "9406 F2".
I have dived into the AS/400 information provided by IBM in their own websites to no avail. My first thought was to check the
Fxx family, but model designations in that line start at
Another candidate I checked was the
6xx line but I have not much information to confirm if it belongs to it. After some time searching in content from other sources, I found a single unit of
9406 F2 being currently sold at ebay (see here). From what I saw at the listing, this
F2 complies with the following:
- Is an AS/400e system, prior to e-server and i-series.
- Is a rather big system with about 68+ cm wide, 83+ cm long and 1+ m tall.
- Primary color is black with secondary being blue (I found some other IBM computers having alternatively red decorations instead or blue, or none at all).
The information relative to the system was extracted from the listing and at the time of asking I have no confirmation about it. I need more precise information about the system to study the viability of the operation.
For this reason I would like to ask this community if someone knows/has worked with this system and could help me to properly identify it.
