Any comparison to an Origin 200?  Been lusting after one of them for a 
few years now (well actually I've been lusting after an affordable 8+ 
CPU Origin 2000, but finding one seems to be impossible); however, if 
this thing is roughly comparable (despite the obvious single CPU 
restriction and fewer drive bays) then I think I'm in love.

'cos anything MMJ is hard to find around here (Australia).  It will 
probably take me a few weeks to track down something or bastardize an 
existing connector to fit.
