zEnterprise BC12

On Tuesday IBM formally launched its latest mainframe computer, a type of machine that has been around for 49 years, and has endured through minicomputers, microcomputers, personal computers, and servers.  Most notably, the new machine, with the attractive name zEnterprise BC12, costs $75,000.  That is a price cut of about 25 percent from the last model in this series of mainframes.  To add more perspective, 10 years ago, before the zEnterprise series was around, Big Blue proudly launched a model called the Z990, or T-Rex, that started at $1 million.  Prices went way up from there.
