Why?  The cost of licensing the software, energy and maintenance it would
make it much cheaper to buy a fast 170.  (This of course negates the value
of speed and residual value.)  IBM has 0% financing this year to incent
purchases before Y2K.

See my White Paper from IBM.  If they can't find a copy (you know they run
their systems on /390 outdated, unreliable hardware), I will e-mail you a
copy with a .PDF file of somewhat updated prices (not 100%, but good enough
to sell management).  IF YOU E-MAIL ME, USE MY PRIVATE E-MAIL ADDRESS IN
THE SIGNATURE OF THIS PAGE.  OTHERWISE YOU RUN THE RISK THAT I MAY NOT
RESPOND.  E-MAILS TO MY PRIVATE ADDRESS ARE RESPONDED TO QUICKLY.
(Midrange-l, as much as I love it.) doesn't always get read, because
there's a lot of it.

You might even suggest to IBM that they update my white paper, but it would
seem that they are to interested in green paper and the almightily stock
price to make this investment.  (God forbid they might sell more hardware!)
