Depends on what you consider semi-modern.

The smallest ones I'd consider as "semi-modern" would be the (604e 
based) 43P-150 or the (POWER3-II) based 44P-170 - which top out at 5.3 
IIRC.  Don't expect to do stuff such as LPARs with it, but they'll at 
least give you some idea of whether you want to go further.

As for the pizzaboxes, they're smaller but a good deal older - and 
appear to top out at 5.1(although some have thought that 4.3 fits them
