I do not think IBM ever really did black suits. Navy blue and dark
grey, although the skinny tie era was before these machines (maybe the
fat, good-for-eatin'-ribs ties of the 1970s would work).

Anyway, "midrange" was a dumb marketing term that they forced on us.
They are all really minis, no matter who does not want to admit it.
