Assuming this has the same basic memory subsystem as the E250 and Ultra
2 (non-PCI version), I would have to pass.  I found those too slow for
some of the tasks I threw at them - this is for a lower-end production
machine, not a rescue.

Come on, I am willing to spend up to 10 honeybees here ... don't give me
this low-end stuff :-)
