I wanted a 370/145, but all I got was the nameplate on a PC.
The "5" series 370's (135/145/155/165/195) where the last ones with
console typewriters and real display lights and switches. The next
set, the "8" series had a CRT and replaced lights and switches
with displays on the bottom of the screen and "F" keys. :-(
I had the privlege of be a systems programmer (with sole user
privledges) at places with all of those except for the 195.
The 165 was an MP, but I rarely got more than half of it.
