Has anyone any information - or better experience - with the new HP RISC series
700, in biological sequence analysis.

It's performance/price ratio looks very impressive: 17.0 MFLOPS for about
$15,000 for a HP 720.

I know nothing of the HP-UX dialect of UNIX and would like to know if anybody
has experience with it compared to SUN and SGI which are the other alternatives
I have considered.
