IBM do a mainframe for $75,000 but I doubt it is a proper mainframe.
The one I used at my last job was about £10 million. We then had external primary solid state memory which was another £2 mil (was the size of a long supermarket chiller), then you had secondary memory, and then you had the robot tape cartridge unit (see vid below). You also had hard disk that depending on speed could be ‘quite’ expensive. Then we had two printers at £500k each. So it soon adds up.
On top of that the room was about the size of an average Aldi complete with all the halon fire protection and air con.
When I was at BA we had 7 mainframes for the engineering, crew scheduling, holiday booking, financial systems. There were also 5 systems for the ticket reservation systems (plus another 5 that were active standby/backup systems). One building was EMP protected and had significant security. IT budget was quite large.
