What will you be doing with the machine?  For desktop use, go for the
SunBlade; if server ops or heavy number crunching, go for a U30 with a
CPU with plenty of L2 cache and a Creator 3D.

I've got a dual-360mhz U60 and a SB100 (with Expert3D Lite) at home and
they're both good desktops, but the SB100 "feels" faster due to the
500Mhz CPU (even tho it only has 256K of L2 cache, versus 4meg on each
of the U60's CPUs) and Expert3D Lite versus Creator3D.
