Heh... just the 4 digit numbers themselves don't indicate usefulness... 
A 7011-250 blows goats... it's a 66Mhz 601 with PPC local bus.  
Apparently there are some really nasty 7013's too... something was 
mentioned recently... or was that 7012... yeah I think 7012... where it 
was like an MCA 43P..

Make sure that any machine you're using that is that old is a POWER, 
POWER2, or POWER2SC or <Yoda>miserable you will be</Yoda>

I still do have a special place in my heart, however, for mrderp (my 
7006 41T) an 80Mhz 601 with the GXT500?... the high-end one (bought 
from Mr. Bill).
