Yep!  I am "familiar" with that machine in the fact that he (Guy) won it
only a few hundred more than my max bid.  I was glad to see it went to a
fellow collector.  I could easily fit an MP3000 here in the house, but
nothing of the caliber that the 18 year old gentleman previously posted
about on the list had scored.  I'm still hunting though.  Would love to
find an MP3000 or similar size IBM mainframe (with z/VM on it, cough) for
hobbyist use. :)
