The 360's were discontinued in favor of the 370's1n 1970. As to IBM Mainframe computers (to which I'm sure you're alluding), they are still manufactured in Poughkeepsie, NY. the curret product line is called System z.

I could solve most math problems in less time than it took to enter them into those computers.

Whoops, wrong 360 :)

I have to admit, I was told early on(80s) to forget PCs, that the future was in mainframes. I ignored that advice.

Oh, yeah? Oh, Yeah?? Well, when I put an IBM 360 through the paces at a 1966 Engineering Department exhibition, I concluded that computers were a fad that would fade away like the hula hoop did, and so I passed on my opportunity to get in on the ground floor.

Nope. Just the laptop division. Lexmark bought the printer division. They basically shut down the PC division.

Huh. No loss there, worst PCs I ever used. We went from a lease contract with IBM to Apple. Huge difference.

I've always had great luck with Lenovo. Not so much with Toshiba.

I've had my Lenovo for almost six years, and use it for both work and personal. In my office I have a docking station, and it comes home with me, so it gets used for 12+ hours every day. It has been rock solid. It's built like a tank. I don't know how anyone could have any major issues with them.


My wife's got a Lenovo laptop that fits into her PC at work. That's the most expensive model they had at the time and she has had some problems with it, but likes it. I think it's a ThinkPad. Now she's got an IdeaPad and has had no problems with it, but I'm done with them.
