Nice "personal computer," that.

On the Web, I found the original price quote for a similarly-scaled rack
Challenge; $2,800,000 when new, with base Oracle and 5 years of support.

Since you've got all those slots to play with, wanna trade one 4xR10k/IP25
for two 2xR10k/IP25 and an MC3?  I've got more cards than I can jam in my
Challenge, so I'm looking for higher density.
