Well, ideally CPW rates should directly correlate to the amount of work
you can get done, right? But MHz, well, you know the drill. It's a piece

higher MHz processor needs to be installed. If this same sort of event
is what was driving new iSeries sales (or upgrades, rather) then that
would point to a lack of expanding market.
