Not nit picking, just trying to inform:  IBM type/model numbering scheme is 4 
dash 3, like 1234-123.  The first four is the type, the last three is the 
model designation.

IBM serial numbers (at least, on the RS/6K equipment) are 2 dash 5, usually, 
such as 26-10235.  The "26" being common to the last two systems on the list 
make me want to think that they're the first part of a serial number and not 
part of the type/model.  Most of the beiege equipment I've ever seen has a 
"10" or a "26" preceeding it.  I don't know what that means, though -- maybe 
indicative of RS/6000 equip, or maybe a country code?
