My first Sun was an IPX that came out of a dumpster at Apple Computer.  I
used it to learn on, and, later, when I got far enough along, it was the
home office everything-server.

The SPARCclassic I now use for various services is the same size.  I love
that form factor, and it beats me why it took so long for it to come back,
even as a PC.

The IPX isn't fast, and Sun quit supporting it in the later versions of
Solaris, but they are still great little boxes.
