When you have machines like the Ultra 30 in that class...

I don't like the case design.
I don't like PCI boards having to be squeezed in
I don't like having to use low profile RAM, or forgo the floppy drive
assembly to use Ultra-10 RAM in there.

Yeah, another framebuffer makes a difference, as does a SCSI board.
(I ran one as my desktop workstation for ages. -SCSI +PCi) They are not
_useless_ I just wouldn't buy one. Not even for the house.

But to be on the all time best list of sun kit? Nah. I don't think so.
