The IBM System/32 (IBM 5320) introduced in January 1975 was a low-end business computer. It was used primarily by small to midsize businesses for accounting applications. RPGII was the (main) programming language for the machine. It was the successor to the IBM System/3 in the IBM midrange computer line.
Having the appearance of a computerized desk, the System/32 was nicknamed the "Bionic Desk" after The Six Million Dollar Man, a popular TV program when the computer was introduced in 1975.
Computers too complicated?
- IBM's System/32 might change your mind.
- It's only about the size of a desk so it's small enough to fit in almost anywhere. And it's not expensive. At least not in the kind of terms you're probably used to associating with computer costs.
Above all, System/32 is simple to operate. In fact, it can be run by someone in your company with very little training.
Yet despite its small size, low cost and easy operation, System/32 is a sophisticated computer that can provide you with many of the same benefits big companies get from their big computers.
For instance, System/32 can provide fast, accurate handling of all your accounting needs, improve your inventory control and generate the kind of key reports that can make a major contribution to the management of your business. Without unnecessary complications.
Since January, when IBM introduced System/32, thousands of companies have ordered this remarkable, easy-to-use computer.
