At an event at its campus in Cambridge, Mass. today, IBM introduced two smaller System i machines aimed at smaller businesses. The most inexpensive is the System i5 515 Express, which starts at $7,995 for five users. Companies can then upgrade for $1,250 more per five additional users. The other product is the 525 Express.
IBM execs spoke and then there was a panel with business partners and a couple customers, so I’m working on a story that will probably go live by tomorrow.
