7000 machines are normally the same size as 6000 machines. Not big at
all, in other words. (Update have a 7000-720).
I think the 10000 machines were larger, but I haven't actually seen any
But as far as large go, some of the 8000-series stuff are probably the
biggest, depending on how you define things. The 9000 are also very serious.
