Saw a few of the new SunRay 170s arriving in our office this week. With the paint barely dry on Sun's renewed branding, I was expecting something curvy to reflect the whole "S for sharing" mantra, and possibly even something in the same ultramariney-blue that adorns our website these days... but they basically look like two black bricks with rounded corners, stuck together. Stand more than a couple of feet away and you can't even make out a Sun logo on it... I guess we won't be raking in any product placement business on this one then...
That gripe apart, they actually \*work\* great... nice screen, USB ports a-plenty, and (I'm told) lower power consumption than ever. It's just a pity that something that works that well doesn't shout "Sun" at me, in the same way that a Powerbook shouts "Apple", or a BMW 3 series shouts "office rep" :)
