I find that comment a bit funny. The Catalyst 4900 switches *are* in
all practical sense Catalyst 4500 switches.

4928      = 4500/SupV
4948      = 4500/SupV
4948-10G  = 4500/SupV-10G
4948E-10G = 4500/Sup6-E
4900M     = 4500/Sup6-E

Yes, the 4900s have more line rate ports (and that *is* important in
the DC), but that's mainly because they have fewer of them.
