I could barely give away about half a dozen sub-$100, 1.5GHz uS-III Blade-1500s about a year ago
The USIIIi you have is almost as fast as it gets if your app is not multithreaded
Any further info on what type of computational work you're aiming for?

Here in the UK vendors on eBay have totally unrealistic price expectations. Your 1,5GHZ Silver Model are on offer for $1000+ (don't believe me, check! ) and even a "make me an offer" is refused at $500.

Are you looking for more of a Sparc based server or workstation. If you are looking for a workstation I would almost say a Blade 2500.
