iSeries Blunders, System i hardware
Got this from an AS/400, iSeries and System i systems integrator:
That’s right, it’s a System i 570 (notice TYPE is 9406-570), but the faceplate clearly and proudly says “System p5.” Is this the equivalent of a marketing Freudian slip from the factory? Most likely it’s just an honest mistake, but it’s another twist in the dagger of System i folks who feel that IBM isn’t doing a good enough job promoting the platform.
