Barry Tucker, vice president of sales at Mint Computer, a dealer based in Santa Cruz, California, has been in the IBM midrange trading business for 19 years and he says that the installed base still has a lot of vintage AS/400 and iSeries gear in it--which gives him an opportunity to serve these customers and to make a living as well."If you called me 10 years ago, I would have said that about 80 percent of my business was selling used equipment," says Tucker.Tucker says that he is just starting to see used i5 520 machines hit the market, although there are always a few used machines that come into the market from beta testers and from IBM itself in the wake of new product announcements.These machines are several years old now, and customers that have to be on the front edge of performance--perhaps because they are using WebSphere middleware to Web-enable their applications--are moving to more modern boxes."By next year, there will be plenty of 520s on the market," he says, adding that there are already plenty of iSeries 8XX machines--particularly 800s, 810s, 820s, and 825s--on the market, and that the 7XX line is pretty much dead with the exception of the Model 270, which sometimes still trade.
