Anyone seen one yet?  It would be nice to know if the build quality is
good.  I'm hoping for something better than the Blade systems.

Also, does it use a PC BIOS?

It would be nice if it had a nice ROM monitor instead.

That's one thing I have thought about.  My old Suns are noisy and
getting harder to support, and aren't always fast enough.

The only problem is I would need more than two drives, and rather have
them in the box than in an enclosure.

I wonder if one of those 5-bay SATA RAIDs would fit?  They slide into a
pair of half-height bays.
