SUMMARY: Re: v480 hardware upgrade

Many thanks to all who responded.  I was indeed as I assumed.  There is no 
reason it would not work[1].  It works fine with the v880's.[2]  Parts having 
the same Sun part number are interchangable.[3]  The only issue may be in 
maintenance contracts.[4]
The last one actully answers the spirit of my question.  I was questioning why  
Sun was trying to sell me the upgrade for more than a new machine.  The sum 
of the whole was less than the sum of it's parts.  Maybe this is due to how 
Sun deals with maintenance...

There were other useful replies, but these more directly answered my question.

Thanks again,
