 Oh, yeah. Pretty quick for an old dude. Power2 processors (370 and
previous were all Power first-generation) more memory slots - 4 cards
instead of 2 or 1, MUCH faster/better scsi capability, and generally
sweet. IIRC, IBM was already building PPC models when the 390 came out.
Floating-point performance spanked the 43p right up till the 140 came
 if you don't want it, I'll come get it out of your way.
