Sorry, my point was I paid too much for that config (if it came with a different framebuffer), but at the price paid, I saved about $100 (or more) on the framebuffer, and the rest of the system was "gravy"...

As a man with way too many Ultra 2s, adding an Ultra 60 to my "stash" was far from the top of my list of things to do... I think I have about 25 U2 bases to get rid of (AFTER I keep about 6 for a theoretical lab I plan to build in my basement to learn more about Solaris)...
