(We who actually use the machine know that its the best box on the planet, but they don't have to use any advertising to sell us, we are already sold.) Rather than try to overcome that image problem with effective advertising, they are considering renaming the box and selling it under another name. If that's true, then the current advertising makes some kind of sense. Why push the AS400 if its going to become the "..someother stupid name goes here.."
