Symbolics & Sun-3 + Lucid Dev Envs

I think the major advantage of a Sun with Lucid Lisp over a 3600 is
price of the hardware. Most software managers do not appreciate the
difference a 3600 can make in software productivety. It's can be hard
to justify a $50K system for a 3600 when a $10K (or less per user) Sun
also "runs" Lisp.
Would you please explain why you put the word "runs" in double-quotes?
A minimum-reasonable Symbolics configuration these days costs $35,900.
What do you consider a minimum-reasonable (for Lisp) Sun configuration?
If your configuration is diskless, please include the configuration of
the paging server and how many such diskless configurations it supports.
