Big Blue Beefs Up Its Minis
IBM is set to revamp its line of AS/400 minicomputers. The AS/400 was launched in 1988 and has enjoyed strong sales--estimated at more than $10 billion including software and services--to small businesses and corporate departments. But sales momentum has slowed recently, prompting IBM to bring out a handful of all-new models offering more performance per dollar. Unveiling is set for Apr. 23.
