If you're coming from the PC world, they're fine. But I didn't come
from the PC world...I am accustomed to quality construction. The U5/U10
machines are built from flimsy sheet metal like a consumer-grade PC case.
I can jump up and down on an Ultra30 or Ultra60 (and I'm a big guy)
and do no damage. The same treatment will crush a U5/U10. Any time you
can pick up a computer chassis and visibly TWIST it indicates crap
