I'll freely admit I had fun with my V210s right up until their first
winter, which was when I discovered that four to five months out of the
year, I can't keep them running overnight in my minimally insulated
deckhouse because their internal temperature drops below 5C.

On the other hand, I completely love my X2200M2, and the only thing I'd
love more would be to get my hands on a second one as a spare.  It makes
an excellent application/compute server.
