There was a time when IBM rented two similar models of punch
card processing machines. The more expensive model ran twice
as fast as the cheaper model and rented for about twice as much.
The internal difference was one wire. Clip that wire and you made
the cheaper model into the more expensive one (or vice versa I
forget which.) But since the machines were rented and not sold
the customer could not clip (or replace) that wire.
The rationale was that they weren't renting a machine but a
service. This is the rationale behind all the different models of
Windows 7. They leave features off and charge you less. But their
development and manufacturing cost is the same for all models.
