"Do you need a workstation? And we mean, an honest-to-goodness, take-no-prisoners, kick-butt Unix workstation? Then you should be looking at VA Linux Systems' tiger shark of a system: the VA Linux 420."

"It's a box that'll make power users drool. Designed to run rings around most workstations hard at work on CAD, CAM, DTP, software development, and other staples of a workstation's life, the 420 starts with an Intel state-of-the-art 810e chip set and a 133MHz system bus, and works up from there...."

"Running Red Hat Linux 6.2, we found this system to be a compelling Linux workstation. And make no mistake about it, the word is Linux. If you already know Linux, the box is ready to go. Unlike Corel's software-only package-Corel Linux OS-this is not a system with which someone who doesn't know Linux can sit down and start working immediately."
