Meh, I think that's about the right cost for a machine that we can
continue to use for a while. Sure we can buy cheep hardware, but I don't
think it's great to buy new hardware every other year.

I have no objections at all to the d-i machine. I trust (if this request
is from who I hope it is) that it will be used 100% for Debian work, and
I trust their ability to use this machine to ensure Debian continues to
run smoothly.
