I would not order them. you can stack the cases. when you have hundreds of machines, its convient to stack them on a pallet, wrap them in plastic and use a hand-truck or a forklift to move them around. i guess i could stack on the side but then it gets more scratched then necessary. also unused machines get stacked along a wall

"you can stack the cases"

In what business do you stack unboxed computers on pallets or against walls? These are expensive workhorses - not 20 year old Dell's.
Oh, and as far as "stacking," the D10's are rack-mountable with a 3rd party kit.
