$579K? Ouch. I mean, that's a heckofa machine, but why not pick up
something far more affordable? Why, those cute little Sun SMPs... what
are they called? "E10K" or something like that?
They're going fully-configured for under $10K; heck, someone in .au just
bought one down there with 30 CPUs and 28GB for under $1600 USD.
Sure, a 64-way, 64GB US-II box with a BIN price of $9995 isn't going to
give you that same $579K z900 goodness, but I'm sure most folks here would
find a way to cope with the disappointment.
