Can someone kindly give me an overview of IBM's different server series?

Power Systems
System i (iSeries)
System p (pSeries)
System x (xSeries)
System z (Mainframe)
Cluster systems

I mainly need to know:

1. What each series is mainly used for?
2. Ballpark cost of each series?
3. General advantages/ disadvantages?

Thanks for any input.
