"The Sun Ray 1, unveiled last week, is a notebook-size unit that manages a keyboard, mouse and monitor. It relies on Sun SPARC servers running a Solaris operating environment and Sun Ray enterprise server software for all its processing power and applications, which saves time and money on upgrades and maintenance. It also runs applications from Linux, Windows NT, Unix and Java platforms. The servers are priced from $5,000..."
"Sun Ray appliances can be leased for $9.99 per month or purchased for $499. Monitors are sold separately and usually cost several hundred dollars."
"James Pennington, a vice president at Charlotte, N.C.-based The LearningStation.com, which provides applications to schools via the Web, has also tested the Sun Ray. He said he found the cost of a complete system to be about $700."
"For $30 per month, users can lease the appliance, plus a Sun Enterprise workgroup server, monitor, Ethernet switch, Sun Ray server software and Sun's new StarOffice productivity suite (which can be downloaded free from the Internet)."
