I have seen pictures of the giant rack proliant!~ We want one of those but
have one of the towers with 2 processors in it... also have the 11x17
dulpexing monster laser printer to display next to it..... looks
impressive.... but... want a rack unit too with the rack fully stuffed like
in the picture I saw!
