The marathon rack is ugly. I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole. The APC rack is okay, but these are my favorite:

I'll post some pictures of the APC rack with an Xserve in it and see if that doesn't change your mind. ;)

BTW: Congrats on the kid! :D

everything looks better w/ an apple product in, on, or around it.

I could think of a nice rack for an X-serve... ;)

No but seriously, you can get these 19" racks anywhere. This is nothing new.

Too bad for the most part that rack servers are stuck in a room where you would rarely see them.

this is true, but going into a server room is the coolest experience. i imagine it would be hell to do every day, but man, all the lights and wires, the often-dim lighting, the hum and buzz of silicon hard at work... very sweet!

I used to do it every day but weekends. You definitely would not want to stay/work in one. I can still remember the time I was there the big emergency air conditioner in the corner came on and scared the heck out of me (it never goes on).....but it was worth it to go stand in front of and get frozen (mmm freoney goodness) ;)

On a big side note I remember when the guys next door proceeded to kill the normal air conditioner and the backup....I have never seen(felt?) a room rise in temperature so fast ;)
