IBM RS/6000 43P Model 260 (7043-260)
System Type: 7043-260
Advisory: confusingly, the RS/6000 7043 is one of the few unique 'system types' that features dissimilar hardware! Normally an IBM system type indicates that the motherboard/firmware and other main components remain similar, but not so with the RS/6000 7043 43P and its various (incompatible) models between one another.
Released in 1998, manufacturing ceased in 2000 but IBM continued to support these systems up until 2017 (like most RS/6000s).
