By chhandomay on Oct 01, 2007
a positive review
of the Ultra
20 M2, highlighting it as a solid workstation that combines 64-bit
and 32-bit applications into one box. The reviewer, Fahmida Rashid, points out that the
workstation comes installed with Solaris
10, but support several OS environments with ease. At one
point, she configured the machine to run as a triple boot system with
Solaris 10, Windows XP Professional, and Ubuntu Linux, running without
any difficulty -- making the "Ultra 20 M2 a great
workstation for technical experts and developers."
Fahmida was particularly impressed with the design of the machine, calling out its simplicity and open space that make it an ideal unit for swappable components and cooling efficiency.
Overall, the review was a very strong testament to the Ultra 20 M2's capabilities. Fahmida wraps up by stating that the AMD-based workstation is a welcome change from competitive machines and is "an attractive offering" where the price is right, and it comes with full support.
