Ask and ye shall recieve,

Apparently the Ultra Enterprise 450 server unveiled in NY today
will fill this role. From InformationWeek (08/18):

"The Enterprise 450 server will ship with up to four 300MHz
UltraSparcII processors, 4Gb of Memory and an 84 Gbyte
hard disk, and 6 PCI buses. It will sell for $14, 650,
comparable to similar systems from Wintel vendors."

Maybe Sun will update their web page soon to provide some more
