well, it was 14 disks (it's a model that mounts two more disks in the back),
and the price came straight off HP's website...  (I may have included an IB
card, too.)

if anyone from HP is listening, a model with two quad-core-capable 
sockets would be a good move.  think of it as the perfect map-reduce brick ;)
