Sun Microsystems is reducing the cost of its JavaStation network computer to $499 from its regular price of $699.
Sun says the price cut, effective immediately, will get users up and running on Java-based networks.
JavaStation comes with 32 Mbytes of RAM, centralized software and application administration, rapid application development and deployment capabilities, and enhanced security features.
Before the release of JavaStation two years ago, Sun had touted the development of $500 NCs. NC vendors have been criticized for initially pricing NCs too high, making them a less than desirable alternative to increasingly cheaper PCs.
