I guess it's like Walnut flavor Ice Cream.... Either you like it or you don't.
We have found the Demand for Cobalts to "Still" be Extremely High. They are great machines and very stable. While they are not the absolute Fastest machines available, if properly equipped (Max RAM & Big Hard Disk). They are great little cash cows for running a hosting business with.
Also....... watch the bargain basement over at RS.
Whenever a Cobalt Raq becomes available again. It's snapped up quicker then most people can grab their wallets to try and rent it.
Yes, there are plenty of people with little else to do but "bash" the Raq. Envy I suppose ?? Also, you don't ever see RS trying to unload the 1000+ servers they purchased a couple years back on EBAY.......Why?? The Demand is still High.
my 3 cents.
