Things may change. There are some talks going on with IBM high level managers -current ceo involved- to create an hobbyist program (at least for old boxes).. found out by chance on usenet.

I think there are about 4 or 5 die-hard AS/400s fans in Australia, at least based on bids against AS/400s on eBay and a few chance encounters.
AS/400s on eBay seems to have dried up in the last 12-months, for a while we were seeing a couple every few months, but none for a long time now.
They're one of the least hobbyist-friendly machines you can find so perhaps not that surprising they're in so few collectors' hands.
