You are really good at joking. This "thing" offers MAX 2GB RAM (what were we talking about?), has 128MB and a 500MHz CPU and a 20GB HD.
So I looked at the relevant configs:
cheapest Sun Blade 2000. It can have up to 8GB of RAM: $10.995,00 But 8GB are not available, as there are only 512MB sticks and 8 slots. Given very optimistic prices, one would have to pay around $17.000,00 to get 8GB
(we paid $7000,- for our 3GB dual-P3 with 100GB RAID)
Ok. Let's look a little bit further:
The smallest reasonable config would be a Sun Fire V480 Entry-Level Server. With 16GB RAM it costs: $46.995,-
Big Iron for us...
