Sun2 Review from UNIX/WORLD October 1984, pages 84 to 91
This is copy of a review of the Sun 2 Workstation that ran in
UNIX/WORLD Magazine, Volume 1, Number 5,
which is dated October 1984.
This is the original UNIX/WORLD
published by Tech Valley
Publications it later became
UnixWorld Magazine: Open Systems Computing (1991-1993),
UnixWorld: McGraw-Hill's Magazine of Open Computing,
and UnixWorld's Open Computing (1994-1995).
The latter ceased publication with the December 1995 issue.
A few points of interest from the article:
CPU is a Motorola 68010 running at 10MHz
Maximum physical memory is 4 Megabytes
Maximum virtual memory is 16 Megabytes
All I/O is via a Multibus (an Intel design)
Main disk is a SMD, the largest size is 380Mbyte
Has a SCSI adapter, but the disk is slow and small (42Mbyte)
Sun was just finishing NFS
alludes to future AT&T UNIX System VI and VII
Display supported dual heads and a resolution of 1152x900
List price as tested: $44,900
Sun was still private, had 400 employees and sold 1500 units
A slight edit was done in that the original photograph of the workstation
was a mirror image. This was corrected in this online copy.
