The G40 are so different that I have no idea why IBM gave them the same
machine type.  They have BUMP firmware, whereas the rest do not.  They
have service processors, which the rest do not.  They're multiprocessor,
which the rest are not.

Usually, you're right, parts within a machine type are more-or-less
interchangeable.  When I opened up the G40, I at first thought it was
misbadged because I'd never seen another 701[23] that looked like that
on the inside.

I really don't know.  I haven't used very many of the 7012 and 7013
