in thread STOP Trading Memory for Speed

I have a friend who is a Sun Hardware Salesperson for his sins. I spoke to him a few minutes ago and asked him what iit would cost for a Sun machine that could handle up to 12GB ram. The answer:

E280R Server twin 900Mhz UltraSPARL III processors, 2x73GB fc-al drives, DVD-ROM. - £17,670 with 4GB standard memory (max.8 GB). Just under £5,000 to expand this to 12 GB. Only possible using non-approved DataRam 2GB DIMMS. (Around $35,000)

V480R as above expandable to 4 CPU's and 16GB - £18,507 + £5,000 for the extra ram. (Approx. $37000)

    You asked for apples and got apples. Now you are crying that you really wanted an orange. This is relevant because...?

    Proprietary architectures cost a premium. We all knew that. 64-bits does not mean big iron. Some of us knew that. Now we all know both things.
