I have one whose badge is labeled "4/150". Of course I got it from a
guy who has two SS10 chassis that say "SPARCstation-3" on the front, so
who knows if they ever actually sold them in that configuration! ;)
Anyway those 6-slotters are nice chassis, I like them a lot. I once
built a "mondo Xterm" in one, back in 1993 or so. I used a 3/200 CPU,
a CG5 framebuffer, and two 8MB memory boards. It netbooted Xkernel.
It was (for the day)...glorious. 8-)
