I have is a Sun Ultra 2 (Dual 296mhz) 3d
Creator box attached to a Xerox 6135 Production Printer.
Xerox wants a small fortune to upgrade the Computer.
I would like to speed up file rip time for its pretty slow and files
are getting larger not smaller.
I'm basically a intel guy so these might be some stupid questions
If I bought either a:
1) Sun Ultra 80
2) Sun Blade 150
3) Sun Blade 1000,1500, or 2000
Could I take the hard drive from the current setup and put it in the
new machine and be up and running without any problems?
It seems like the 2000 is a 64bit machine, would that be a problem
considering I would be putting in a drive with older software on it?
Currently I have a dual, would I need to purchase another dual for the
hard drive to work?
Am I thinking correctly in your opinion, a switch to a faster machine
should improve rip times?
Any Gotcha's that you can think of that I should look out for?
Lastly, which one of the options (1,2,3) would, in your opinion be my
Thanks to anyone else who would like to offer a opinion or suggestion
