My post the other day on Dell basically selling the 6950 for the cost of the RAM and CPUs garnered some attention. It seems that Dell's pricing is accurate for the moment -- 30-40% off the normal pricing in an effort to bring more eyeballs to their new server lines. At $29k, it might be worth buying the server just for the RAM and procs. I'm interested to get a look at a Dell-built Opteron server just as I'd be interested in checking out a sports car built by International Harvester -- just for the sheer novelty.
