Well I am trying to decide if it is worth getting.  I don't know much
about the memory architecture of RS6K... I figure it runs Linux decently
given IBM's involvement, as well as AIX of course.

I am not going to buy support for it, it just needs to work.

If RAM is hideously expensive, it doesn't much matter how cheap the
system is ...
