Posted in the office section. Thought I might get some opinions here....

My work place is slowly moving towards a Sunray setup. But I am still using my old desktop and laptop. Both are IBM.

Desktop got a 3.0 Ghz pentium 4 with 1 GB RAM with 80 gigs of HD space.
Laptop is a thinkpad. Cannot remember exact specification at this time. But 1 GB RAM and 80 gig space.

I think the Sunray servers are running Intel Xeon 2.93. RAM and HD space is variable based on needs. I believe I can ask for 2 GB RAM and 80 gig HD space. I got space in a dedicated server for bigger files.

So....what do you think guys....make the move or not make the move?

Well it will obviously be faster, why not? Try it out if you can, then decide.

The only thing I am not sure of is I think you share the processor with a whole bunch of other folks. So it may not be as fast....not sure....

No Autocad or anything like that.

My work is mostly on MS Office and some .NET programming. A few proprietary software - mostly having to do with document management and print.

Are you saying fine with Sunray? Also wondering how many users on a sunray before it starts to drop performance...

Never tried it before, I have worked on administering thin clients and Citrix though. Generally it isn't too bad unless you are a "heavy" user (lots of windows and programs open at once), then a local workstation is recommended.
