If I could go back and do it over again, I'd buy something else.  There are a
few "neat" features, but overall, I'd rather have a 1U x86 box.  As far as
alternatives, the only other 1U boxes I've played with are VA and Penguin.
I've heard good things about the IBM netfinity, it looks like you can get a
1U box from them with 20GB HD + 128 Megs for around $1300.
