Developers Find Plenty to Like in Sun's 386i Workstation
A workstation-in-a-box for the serious Unix developer or power LAN user.
It has a few shortcomings: The keyboard isn't up to par; the mouse has too many buttons,
and the SNAP system administration software needs some work.
Otherwise, the Sun 386i elegantly meets the needs of technical developers and CAD/CAM
jockies. The 386i also provides a reliable way to multitask DOS applications.
Price: $7,990 for the monochrome version with 15-inch, 1,152-by-900 pixel monitor, 4M
bytes memory, 80387 math coprocessor, 4-slot AT-style bus and 3 1/2-inch, 1.44M-byte
floppy drive; $10,990 for color version with 91M-byte hard drive.
