 Sun Blade 1500

"So far the best selling workstation in Sun's lineup has been the Blade 150, an UltraSPARC-based workstation made to use Solaris UNIX, although it's quite long in the tooth at this point and it isn't even close to the same level of performance that you'd get from a comparably priced AMD64 machine -- or even a 32-bit Intel-based P4 or Xeon computer. Unless you need to use Solaris/SPARC software there's no reason to buy a Blade 150, which generally retails new for around $1400. The Blade 1500 is the newest edition to the SPARC-based workstation market and Sun hopes to make it their new bestseller. "
