Subject: ibm earnings report

the 2q 08 earnings report says " system i servers decreased 47 percent ".

Does converged system p include some system i sales, or are we actually down

Revenue from the converged System p server products increased 29 percent

5 percent, and revenues from the System i servers decreased 47 percent.
Revenues from System Storage increased 12 percent and revenues from Retail
Store Solutions were flat. Revenues from Microelectronics OEM decreased 19
