MEDIA: Sun Ultra 20M2 workstation review - part 1

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by John D Groenveld, Jan 14, 2007.

  1. Martin MC Brown's review of the RoHS refresh Ultra 20 workstation:
    <URL:http://www.computerworld.com/blogs/node/4304>
    | For Sun, workstations of any type were based on the SPARC processor -
    | I cut my teeth on a Sparc2 and later a Sparc10 and over the years have
    | owned an IPC, Ultra5, Ultra1, and currently own an Ultra60, while
    | having an Ultra 3 Mobile Workstation on test from Sun for more than
    | the last year now (and I still love it).

    The Hardware Handbook states that the Ultra 3 workstations
    were EOL'd last month.

    Any word from Sun about their replacements?

    Assuming there will be, is an x64-based system also in the mix?

    I don't believe Sun actually made the Ultra 3 laptops.
    They were actually made by Naturetech and Tadpole.

  3. Hi,
    And I think General Dynamics owns them now.

    You're right.

    It appears GD bought Tadpole in 2005, but Naturetech appears to still be a
    seperate company.
