Well, first thing 'd say is be careful how much you take home - while all the 
machines you listed are fun and interesting, it is hard to get rid of 
unwanted systems. I picked up a literal van load of Sun hardware (Sun 10s, 
20s, Ultra 1, 2, 5 and 10s), but have been challeneged to shed the last few 

In order of preference, I'd suggest Ultra 5 and 10s (if included in the lot), 
then Ultra 2s and skip Ultra 1s unless they have lots of RAM/HDs - actually, 
that goes for all of the machines - included RAM/HDs are reusable in other 

Also, make sure you get keyboards/mice - that will help make the machines 
more usable for most folks...

Good luck!
