Heh. Well on another consideration any "rental" will out live its cost
effectiveness in 6 months or less. At least if you own the box, its
useful for a long period of time.

Heck I got a quad opteron, 2 gig of memory with 2 6402 HP controllers
and 2 fully loaded MSA30s for 3k. Used of course but still.

The equivalent machine brand new is 10k and the same machine from Rack
Space is going to be well over 1200.00 a month.
