The price seems a bit high.  But, considering that it is a Rack unit,
not a deskside, it may be worth it.  It should be fairly cheap to
increase the CPU count significantly.

Also, one of the part numbers makes me think this is an Infinite Reality
machine rather than an RE2 machine.  That makes the $1k sound even more

Also, from the part numbers listed, it seems that this machine has the
Sirius option.  However, that is somewhat useless if you can't get the
BOB and cables for it.  On the other hand, BOBs show up on ebay not that
infrequently, though that doesn't really help with the cables.

All in all, I'd say this machine is probably solidly worth the $1k they
are asking, maybe even a bit more.

If I could afford it and the shipping (and had a place to put it in my
apartment), I'd pay it in a heart beat.
