Hi Lance,
	RLX Technologies has an evaluation program as well for the turnkey
RLX BLAST Cluster Solution.=20
This white paper might be helpful
http://www.rlx.com/pdf/RLXSCCTechWP_v1.0.pdf, as well as the info on =
the RLX
Cluster Solutions

I believe that the Apple optimizations are only for BLASTN searches - =
correct me if I'm wrong on Apple.

Have you heard of TurboBlast by Turbogenomics?  I believe they have an
evaluation program.
