Beg to differ - a U1 is about 4 inches tall, the U30 is about 6 or 7
inches tall (on it's side), also the footprint of the U30 (while on
it's side) is a few inches bigger on every side.

BUT, I agree, they are *very* nice, and dual-headed, 16 memory slots,
etc. make them quite nice... A nicely equipped U30 should be about $200

These are the machines I am holding on to after my garage purge...
