Personally, I have no opinion on the appliances. I would expect it to be decent (in the "nobody was ever fired for buying IBM" paradigm), you can get in relatively cheap, then they get you on the scale-up and the real money is in licensing, particularly the db and apps.

What is included? Any Hidden costs?
