Thanks to all who answered. Nobody could confirm any
problems with 400/4 cpus in E450s.

I went back to the quoted competitor and asked for the
source of that information.

Obviously a Gartner Group bulletin from november '99 was
the source of that information. During a period of time in
'99 it seems there was an issue with 400 MHz cpus with 4
mb cache. Gartner suggested to ask Sun for a no cost
upgrade to 400 MHz / 8 mb cache cpus.
