A bit of self promotion here! IBM wrote a case study on why we (Vapormatic that is…) went for a new AS/400 iseries i520 when we needed to upgrade our AS/400 from our older 620.
Platinum Blue (the supplier of the AS/400) was spectacular; especially Matt (Tech) and Jacquie (Sales) who combined did a splendid job of making the transition from one box to the other (including several op system upgrades, etc.) a piece of cake!
Since starting at Vapormatic and getting involved with not only programming the AS/400 (RPG) but also looking at its robustness, I have never stopped being impressed by its remarkable resiliance and stamina for the job; if you want to run a serious business with a machine that just works 365/24/7 the its the machine for you!
