It's only the fans in the 6000 that need rewiring. I don't know if's a
major job but it can be done.
I am going to bid on the 705,as I have a spare expansion pack for it.
It will also sit nicely next to the 500.
I am dubious about the description as well, although it says it has
been upgraded the model number given is a 300. I will annoyed if turns
out to be correct. He says it's not been opened but he has a pciture
of it open at the bottom. It only has one disk in it. anyway.

Anyone know how well a 500 and a 705 would cluster, or would it slow
down the 705.
