I have a PC/3270, which is an IBM PC modified to turn it
into a 3270 terminal. A new keyboard interface is used
to connect it to a 3270 keyboard, and there's a special
screen, too. It came with a manual and disks for the
terminal emulator software.

But no, I don't have a handy IBM/370 to plug it into
for testing!
