I think there are different aspects in a top 10 list...
you could have top 10 nostalgic boxes... top 10 historical
boxes (ones that set new milestones for Sun or the industry), etc...
Nostalgic boxes for me are: 386i, 486i, 2/120, 3/80, 4/3x0, 3/4x0, SS2, U1
historical: 3/60 ? , 3/80, 386i, SS1, 4/6X0, SS10, U1, ...
