Depends on what line of Sun servers you priced out. One thing to keep in mind,
the lowest entry level Sun server will be of a lot higher quality than any
mainstream Dell server just due to the fact that companies like Sun, Compaq, and
IBM spend a lot more resources and time doing product testing and evaluation
than Dell does.
