[FoRK] SunFire X2100 M2

At the current prices, 1.3 kEUR buys you a SunFire X2100 M2 dual-core 1.8 GHz
Opteron with 4 GBit Ethernet ports (2 nForce, which are fantastic latency
and 2 Broadcoms which are so-so), 4 GBytes of DDR2 (it can take 8 GBytes,
and at current prices it's just slightly over twice the price for 4)
and 2x500 GByte Caviar RE2 -- and a service processor which allows you to
set up the system from anywhere in the world, remote booting
from local media (drives or .iso) included.

That's not so very bad.
