Heh. I take it you haven't seen the E15k case mod? The page author presents
it as "the most expensive case mod on the planet".
I especially like the quote at the top of the page "Sun itself has
contacted me and expressed a lot of interest in this, and of doing
something similar to the 15k when it undergoes it's next revision.. whether
that will pan out is something we'll have to wait and see, but it's great
that they are showing interest in making their machines better looking"
