I've been doing my first proposal for a Model 600, and the limitations
on the number of cards is terrible.

I would like a 600 with 4 comm lines, 2 twinax controllers, and a IPCS.
Can't do.  Not enough slots.

I can't find an expansion unit anywhere.  If I need 2 twinax
controllers, I can only get 2 comm lines, and 1 would be ECS.

If I go to a 620, my prices skyrocket to around $100,000.

The customer has an F20 now, CPW 11.6, the 600 would be perfect at CPW
22.7, but the expansion capability is not there.

I've also config'd up a model 500, but that comes to approx $60,000 for
21.4 CPW and he doesn't have the newest box.

Anyone else run into these problems?
