Suns Sun Blade 100 is an ably performing entry-level workstation that gives companies access to 64-bit Unix computing at a very low starting price of $995. When teamed with Suns new Expert 3D-Lite graphics card, the Sun Blade 100 makes a capable and affordable low-end MCAD system.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // The Sun Blades attractive price point lowers the barrier to entry for companies evaluating Unix workstations.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // With graphics, two 1394 ports, a Smart Card reader and a NIC all integrated, the Sun Blade saves room for future expansion.

Low price; convenient chassis design.

Clumsy CDE interface.
