Not sure what you are going for, but any list of Sun equipment would
have to include the Ultra 2 - it is just too good a box, esp. as a
price/performance leader (IMHO).

The U30/U60 also deserve high marks - just plain amazing, esp. as
desktops with nice dual framebuffers installed.

Finally, for a home fileserver, I quite like my E250, but that is off
the beaten path - it is SMP, has slots in the chassis for 9 drives (all
can be 1.6" SCA), can take lots of RAM, and are in the $500-600 range

The SS/5 is nice, but the framebuffer choices leave something to be
desired in a desktop box. And the lunchbox series are nice too...

Your list needs a context to place it in, I am assuming you are going
for some sort of Geek Points ranking...
