Art,
you aren't alone.
IBM heard from others the same frustration and came up with
the 620 - 2175. For the 620 were you pricing a 2179 or 2175 ?
The 2175 is still more money than the 600 but it doesn't hurt
as bad as the 2179 if all you really need is more comms and
IBM is running some introductory specials on it.

HTH,
