   Sure.  There may be better choices, but VERY few machines will be as 
reliable, as compact, or pull that little power.  Sun4c-based boxes 
make excellent "utility" machines for these reasons.

   That said, I don't have any in production anymore (and only one sun4m 
box left), but not because they're inadequate in any way.
