I have seen the Multia boxes for as low as $550.  I don't know where you
can find a Pentium box for that price with a SCSI controller, 340 Meg
SCSI drive, 24 megs ram, 2 pcmcia slots, 2 Meg TGA graphics card, an
ethernet card, mouse and keyboard.

Linux/Alpha isn't bad.  Takes a bit of fiddling to get the right bits and
pieces together to get a stable system, but once you do, it is a pretty
impressive little machine.
