The most I spent personally was a bit over $10,000 for my personal POWER6
server. I was actually ready to buy a brand new POWER7 (which would probably
have crossed the $15K mark all loaded), but no IBM VAR would take my money
because I don't do service contracts, so I bought used from a company in
Minnesota. Later on I got the HMC for it also, so I guess it's been around
$11,000+ all in.
