Oh...  I took it wrong then, Leif...

Good question, Tom, which I think Jim (Franz and Baker, both ;-) answered

But Yeah...  I think Jill's got her work cut out for herself...!  I'm
getting a lot of good info here, from both Jim and Jill, and from Andrew
Borts last week...  Given time, the facts will emerge, and I'm sure it will
result in a lot of good for the iSeries Community.

But I'm still confused about pricing...  That model that Andrew Bortz
originally posted was VERY well loaded, but only cost $7K...?  I don't like
to look a gift horse in the mouth, but...

I've heard this iNation offer is very similar to PID-turned-PartnerWorld's
offer.  IIRC, that was purchase at 50%, or lease at 1% per month, for four
years...  This model for $7K doesn't look like it'd retail for $14K.

Here's what I'm looking for...  That same model that Andrew showed for $7K


more arms! (smaller drives, if needed)
more disk - raided
more IOP
===> And anything else needed for *LPAR* (multiple if possible)
more memory
Either IXS or at least an IXA
4583 16GB 1/4-Inch Cartridge Tape
4746    PCI Twinaxial Workstation IOA
4801  PCI Crypto Coprocessor

SOFTWARE (please omit if already included):

===> PASE
5722-XW1 iSeries Client Access Family (probably already included)
5722-QU1 Query for iSeries
5722-ST1 DB2 Query Manager and SQL Development Kit for iSeries
5722-AC3 Crypto Access Provider 128-bit (?  Is 128-bit for use in EMEA...?)
5733-SM2 IBM SW Subscription 2 Yr Prepay

That's the "only" additions I can think of, off the top of my head...;-)

Now the hard part is pinning down the numbers:  How much would something
like THAT run...?  (My preference is for free...;-)  But anything through
the iNation would be a great deal...!

One thing I have never seen mentioned, but seems like it would really help
consultants...  A discount on PartnerWorld...  (My understanding is that PWD
grew out of PID, from the iSeries Division, maybe that would cost-justify
the thing...)  If consultants have time (meaning billing is down), even the
small fees might be hard to come by...  Same with education.

Thank you ALL, for the info.
