Those are very nice systems, for the price.  They won't run AIX 5.2,
but they will run AIX 5.1.  From what I've heard, the framebuffer alone
on those systems is worth the buy-it-now price.

One thing I've learned (the hard way) about RS/6000 systems is, like
SGIs, you won't be able to buy a pile of parts for less than you'll be
able to buy a system.

I've got an RS/6000 370 at home that I got for free because someone
tossed it out, thinking it was an old PS/2.  Idiot lusers -are- our
friends sometimes. :)
