Personally I'd stay *far* away from the XServs until Apple learns to build 
some real server harware.    The current XServs have internal parts more 
appropriate to a Dell desktop (promise controller, low-speed commodity IDE 
drives), than a server.

If Apple has prices these IU desktop machines similar to Sun, then I sense 
doom ahead for the Apple Server Division.
