According to Paul, "Between the stellar performance of the 9650SE and the calm and steady power of the Ultra 40 M2, all of [the] tasks were handled with aplomb. Suffice it to say, you'd be hard-pressed to equal or surpass the performance of this box with any computing hardware available today."

More praises...
- "Simply the most powerful workstation available from a mainstream vendor today."
- "This system is the creme de la creme of the workstation world."

Great job, Sun workstation team!
