The Cray CS6400 is also considered 4d I believe.

I probably will never go for a SC2000E unless one happens on me by random
chance for cheap cheap cheap to free with delivery for free :-)

As much as I love some of these older beasts... I really don't want to

I have (and a cockpit Star Trek) consumes enough space as it is.
