I got half a van full of Sun hardware for $100 off eBay, and the second half of the van for another $100 - it included various Ultra 1, 2, 5, 10, as well as SS/10, 20, and a few SS/5s...
Of course, _all_ the freakin' drives were pulled, but there was a very large amount of RAM spread across the machines...
