My preferred supplier just called in telling me that ASR 9001 are way more expensive
currently than, say, ASR 1002 with RP2. I'll get a quote later today.

ASR 9006 OTOH are rather cheap for their capabilities he claims - but definitely
too big for the current project. Possibly for the new data centre ...

So, any remarks about the 1002?
