It's gorgeous, it's fast, and its cheap.

Wow. Wow..

A real departure from Sun's latest ugly-duckling casework, at least.

I was just about to bid on the HP Xw6200 on eBay, but now... I do think 
the XW6200 is a better deal at this point, however, considering a 
similiarly configured Sun Ultra 20 is $2000+
