Did they give a reason for why they believe the AS/400 will be going away? 
Do they mean away from their plant(s), or away from the world?  Have they
seen the equipment that will be the replacement? The software?  Is the
person making these claims experienced?  3-5 years isn't very long, it
really isn't. 

Be sure thet see the newest black boxes and talk with shops using them. 
The new boxes really smoke.
