Dell has crazy deals all the time - in 2005 I picked up my SC420 with
2.53Ghz Celeron, 512M RAM, 160G SATA disk, and CD-ROM drive, gigE, etc,
for something like $160 *shipped*. I paid more for the monitor I hooked
up to it, than I did for the actual system!
It's been running almost 24/7 for three years now, doing rsnapshot backups.
