On the other hand 2 quad core dual processor HP servers currently are
quoted at around $15k. (assuming 8g memory each). The SE license for
that is an eye watering $65k, but the EE license for the same system
would be an altogether ludicrous $468k. In fact you get the 2 dual
processor quad core solution using RAC and SE for the same list price as
a single processor license for EE with RAC. 


Methinks that recent hardware improvements and SE licensing changes make
a pretty compelling case for SE nowadays. Unless of course you happen to
have one of those license deals (site licenses for example) that Oracle
'don't do'.

Correct, though SE's limitations (only 4 CPUs) restrict its usefulness
somewhat.  Dual-core processors help.
