Yup... The Thinkpad ran AIX IIRC and was used for Sales Demos of
software on AIX4.x...
I think the other boxes were also sold as low-end AIX workstations
with RS6000 model numbers... but I don't remember.
The higher end RS6000's ran with SCSI controllers but the OS/2 boxes
were IDE (IIRC) and also could run AIX v4.1.x.
I think the workstations were PowerPC 604.
Been a long time since I worked for IBM (and I ordered a bunch of the
surplus SCSI versions of the workstations internally for my group)
