Yes, including SmartNet annual costs, for a total hard cost of
ownership over 5 years.  (we could argue about soft costs to compute
the actual TCO until we're blue in the face and not get anything
definitive or probably even close to accurate)  Not sure what they are
on a 506, but my 515E is around $500 USD a year.
