I just thought how I should have phrased this question:

"Ya know, my former employer upgraded their machine a couple years ago, due
to extra processing for 400 to *nix conversion.  They were a $500M company
running on a F70 (CPW around 60)."

"Prior to that, they had some Exx with CPW of 20...  So I know you can do a
lot with just a few CPW...!  (User's thought they were in 'hawg heaven'
after the upgrade..."

"But...  I was just curious"...
