All IBM equipment is assigned a four digit value. This is known as the 'system type'. There is sparse information cataloguing all of the system types: this page attempts to rectify that by documenting as many as possible.

This is an ongoing project.

System Type Master List for IBM equipment

Categories of 'similar' types will be grouped together on the same rows: these similar types will share some core similarities with one another, but vary in form factor for instance.
