But if we are familiar with any other IDEs, we may jump to 287 as well... As for me, I usually use JBuilder and I do hope that I can jump up to 287, even though I got very small amount of experience in WebSphere Studio...

However, IBM 285 costs HKD $575, while IBM 287 costs HKD $1365, if there is no promotion.
Thus, if you are not sure about whether you take ICED, you may consider to try IBM 285 first.
